Crystal Martin - First 2 FinishThis grant made such a huge impact on my motivations to do this work. First2Finish was a dream I had as a counselor, to offer superb postsecondary counseling and increase access to higher education for students who may not otherwise receive this support from their families or schools. Though my heart is in the work, it was not realistic for me to fund its start up with my current financial status and with the strikes and pay cuts consistently coming from my school district. The Pollination Project funded my dream, so I could help fund, support and guide the dreams of the next generation.
