Dear family and friends,

My name is Lailah Fofana, I am currently a graduating senior at Howard University.

I have a chance to win $500 to help pay my tuition.  I need 8 to 10 family members or friends to donate as little as $5 to help me qualify to win $500.  Your donation vouches for my dedication to earn my degree.  By earning this scholarship and receiving your donation, I am empowered to graduate with far less student loan debt. My major is communications with a concentration on mass media; my minor is business administration. I am currently on the Dean's List with a 3.4 GPA; last semester I earned a 4.0 semester cumulative average. Over the summer, I was in an internship program at Kaiser Permanente in Rockville, Maryland.  I worked in the marketing and communications department.  Currently, I am active in the African Students Association and the California Club.  Last year, I competed against students all over the country and was selected as an intern in the prestigious American Express internship program here in Washington, D.C.  I am the very first student from Howard to accomplish this goal.  

My experience at Howard has been AMAZING! I have learned and grown so much in three short years, and I feel confident that upon graduation I will be well prepared to pursue my goals.


Thank you so much in advance for your donation!!

All the best,

    Thank you for giving the gift of education and helping to fund #ProjectGraduate2018.  Your generosity will help us to provide a "Loanership" to a student in need of a little extra financial support.  We target high-performing students nationwide.  Our "Loanerships"  increase the student's personal credit score as long as they make really small payments for 12 months.  We also help them to close their starting salary gaps with additional coaching and job skill training.  We charge 0%-3% interest based on the risk-profile of the student. 
    Our "Loanerships" are awarded to students that show additional efforts to raise funds to lower their financial need.
    PYT believes we can help students and parents tackle the stress of paying for college with a better solution than traditional private student loans.
