When Della mentioned the “Reaching for the Stars Program” and what her mission was all about, I had no hesitation in committing to be a part of the event. I am committed to partnering with any positive program that helps young people.

Angela Ray of Angela Ray International will perform one of her original poems at the “Reaching for the Stars” Scholarship Program on Saturday, May 31, 2013 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta at 7:00 P.M. The event is a program of Fly Philanthropy, a nonprofit organization with a mission to provide scholarships for students for college in addition to the necessary supplies to help sustain them while they matriculate.

Founder, Della Williams is committed to service and helping others. In addition to the scholarship fund, Williams also works with celebrity chef Robert Stewart to feed the homeless once a month in downtown Atlanta. When Ray met Williams, she immediately wanted to work with her.

“When Della mentioned the 'Reaching for the Stars Program' and what her mission was all about, I had no hesitation in committing to be a part of the event. I am committed to partnering with any positive program that helps young people,” Ray added.

A highly requested speaker for high school and college students, Ray is also a George Moses Horton Award winning poet and the author of the book of poetry, Blackberry Whispers. Her latest book, Rays of Motivation was released in March.
