Vannessa's Story

My passion is law and criminology, because I feel that there is a reason behind everything and everyone’s decisions. I have had an interest in law since the fifth grade. The main thing that sets this program apart from the others just like it is that it offers the opportunity to study law right in the center of it all, Washington D.C. This program also gives me a day dedicated to studying my specific interest, which is juvenile delinquency.

I am motivated to succeed by my family and most of all by my younger brother who is 6 years old. They motivate me to succeed because, along with my older sister, I will be the first in my family to finish high school and go to college. I know that being successful will give my younger brother something to look up to, because the world only become more and more difficult.

Wishbone is my stepping stone to changing a troubled youth life and without Wishbone, this opportunity would be a long shot.

A Note from , Vannessa's Teacher

Vannessa would make a wonderful addition to the program and I feel she would greatly benefit from it as well. When Vannessa puts her mind to something, she can and will do it fully to the best of her abilities.

She is very hardworking and is at the top end of her class. She is a bright, caring, compassionate young woman and will take this program very seriously as she is considering it as her profession. I feel this would be a very good fit for her.
