You Helped Kids Discover their Unique Gift

Because of your support, Maya B. is reaching new heights and embarking on new adventures!

This past spring, Maya graduated from high school with honors and a 3.9 GPA. As a testament to her hard work, she’s even received a full scholarship to the Air Force in San Diego.

But what makes this young leader truly unique is her knack for picking up languages! After taking a series of tests, it was determined that Maya is gifted in learning new languages, scoring in the top one percent of a military test measuring linguistic aptitude! She’s already well-versed in Chinese, but Maya plans to spend her time in the U.S. Armed Forces training to become a Russian linguist.

Her rare ability is in high demand and, if she chooses, Maya will have the opportunity to become a Russian interpreter for the military soon after she graduates. With a long-held dream of traveling the world, Maya now has this possibility within her reach.
