WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO
An exclusive screening about education!
Meet and talk to Stride’s students!
Alejandra and Tenzin, Stride’s inaugural class of high school students, are in the midst of their junior years and are excelling! Below we share some of their reflections on what they’ve accomplished thus far.
First of all, I would like to wish you a joyful holiday and a happy new year, full of happiness and prosperity. Lots of wonderful things have happened in my life that I hope to continue to impact my future. I hope I will be able to share with you as a new year comes even more good news!
I am giving my best effort in my studies, and I took advantage of the opportunities I have discovered. I got accepted into S-PREP at Columbia University, and I attend there on Saturdays and take Physiology and SAT Math Prep classes since October. Through this program, I recently got accepted into the Columbia University Pipeline Program sponsored by the Charles Drew Premedical Society where I have a mentor from Columbia University. Over the summer, it was very nice to go back to Sloan Kettering and work there as a patient escort. I am grateful for the people I met this year and I am thankful to my family for always supporting me. I am also thankful to my mentor, Roberta, for always being there for me and for the entire Stride’s members. I would like to take this moment and thank you for being part of the Stride foundation and helping students like me turn my dreams a little closer to being realities.
Best Wishes, Tenzin Yingsal
Here are some of the things that I can be proud of from this past year:
1. My dance studio won entertainer of the year in our “That’sEntertainment Dance Nationals”
2. I got accepted to do an externship with 1st grade students and have been enjoying working with the kids, especially since teaching is my passion
3. I got a 95 in my math class 1st marking period 🙂
4. I received a small scholarship in my dance studio which helped to cover the cost of the classes that I take
5. I got asked to dance in Washington Irving High School’s Christmas Show 🙂
Thank you for all of your continued support.
Sincerely, Alejandra Romero

I would like to thank everyone who has benefited the Stride Foundation and contributed to making dreams of people like me become realities.
