I remember a really dark time in my life where it looked as though everything I cared for was tumbling down right before my eyes. Something unexpected happened. Sleepless nights and slow passing days, all while I was in my first year of college. My lit professor shed some light on my situation and helped me heal through writing.
I wrote, she edited. I made corrections on paper and the load lifted from my shoulders as I turned in my honors project that year. I got an A in that class but I what I took with me was much more than a grade. I survived a horrid experience with the help from an angel, my teacher.
In life, somethings don’t go as planned. Emergencies happen, the unforeseen arises and even the unexpected takes front and center in our lives but some things remain. An education is something that nothing and no one can take away from you. Just take it from me. Knowledge is something you can take with you anywhere you want to go. It opens doors, it heals, it even helps you to conquer your worst fears.
Imagine having a potential leader, doctor or teacher miss their opportunity? I can’t imagine what I would’ve done without my professor but YOU can make a difference. YOU do have the power to make a change. Just by watching the video below, Neutrogena® Wave for Change® will donate $1 to GlobalGiving to support U.S. educational organizations such as: Knowledge is Power Program, Para Los Ninos, and Education Through Music.
Help kids across the nation get closer to the future they’re supposed to lead:
You’ve probably heard that knowledge is power many times before but it’s only because it’s true! Think about it, knowledge brings forth righteous leaders, miraculous doctors, inspiring authors, and motivating individuals that make our lives richer.
But that’s not all….
An additional $1 will be donated to GlobalGiving with each participating Neutrogena product you purchase.
