Silkya is an 11 year old attending Sacred Heart School. She is an honor roll student in the 6th grade and plans to become a FBI Forensic Examiner. Silkya has managed to keep her grades up while traveling with an all star cheer leading team and has recently been accepted to St. Dominic’s Academy where she has been inspired by their forensic science labs and great dance team.
My name is Silkia Rivera, I am a single mother with 3 children and a first generation college graduate. Education represents hope for my family. My priority is for my children to receive the best education possible because I believe education is the key to success. I decided to set a high standard for my children; one that includes attending college and I want to thank The Scholarship fund, and your donors for the great gift of education you have given my daughter, Silkya. We are more than grateful for all the people that have helped make this dream come true for Silkya!
