Helping Young Leaders Build Bright Futures
With a family of four and only one income, Jennifer Ashley found that she needed to help provide for her family. COVID-19 had dealt her family a tough blow as Jennifer’s father lost his job, and the family struggled to make ends meet. Jennifer took it on herself to help support her low-income family.
