What WAEF graduates are saying…
“I am very grateful, beyond words, for the continuous support that I have received from WAEF and all of the amazing donors. Being a WAEF scholarship recipient has had a huge impact on my entire family’s life but specifically my own drive, confidence, and mental well-being. I can only speak for myself, but being a teenager in your first year of college courses and having to find a way to pay for your tuition and basic expenses can be overwhelming and discouraging. But WAEF’s financial support and the guidance from WAEF staff and our mentors have been very beneficial and a significant factor in my achievement of graduating.” Cindy Vasquez, Cashmere
