A big shout out of congratulations goes to LifeSupportM.org’s 2017 Intern, Eric Poon, for his recent admission to Dominican University of California!

Not only was he accepted to Dominican, but also he was admitted to their Reimagining Citizenship program that is partnered with the City of Novato, which includes a $100,000 full ride scholarship and a $10,000 internship stipend.

LifeSupportM.org is thrilled that Eric’s hard work and determination during his life-long journey of home schooling and his six-month long LifeSupportM.org internship community service project (researching, planning, fundraising, and direct experience in Mexico, Peru, and Argentina) helped round him out for this college opportunity.

In a reflective moment toward the end of his trip, Eric said this about his experience: “In my final two weeks, I find myself looking back over my experiences…Everything has been a blur…I have enjoyed my whole trip since day one. There have been nuances and I have learned from each one.”

With his college days just about to start, there is still much hard work ahead of Eric – but from what we have already seen, he will excel!

Congrats Eric and thank you to all our LifeSupportM.org donors, and Eric’s family and friend donors, for helping him learn life skills to last a lifetime!
