I found balancing both to be a very positive experience
MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) December 15, 2008
Dr. Sims, herself a product of foster care, operated and managed the Hopes for Higher Education while pursuing her online PhD. "I found balancing both to be a very positive experience," commented Dr. Sims. "I knew that I wanted to conduct my research in this area, so I was very eager to combine the two activities that I'm most passionate about—my education and helping the kids aging out of foster care." Her organization will receive a $10,000 grant to support their educational cause along with the opportunity to be showcased in a national ad in Essence Magazine.
