Hello everyone! My name is miyoba j moonga, and I come from a small town(chingola)where the rate of high school dropout is alarmingly high. Unfortunately, this has led to devastating consequences such as child marriages for girls and boys engaging in dangerous illegal mining of copper. Witnessing these challenges firsthand has ignited a burning passion within me to make a difference. I firmly believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty and transforming lives. Today, I'm reaching out to you with a humble request for support to fulfill my dream of obtaining a higher education abroad so that I can inspire the children and adults in my community to strive for a better future through education.

In my town, educational opportunities are scarce, and many young girls are forced into early marriages, robbing them of their dreams and potential. Tragically, the plight of boys is equally disheartening. Desperate to contribute to their families and escape poverty, they turn to illegal copper mining, facing unimaginable dangers deep underground. It breaks my heart to share that boys as young as 10 have lost their lives, trapped beneath the earth while searching for a glimmer of hope. These tragic deaths have shaken our community, leaving families shattered and dreams forever unfulfilled. With broken dreams this desperate path often leads to drug abuse, as the resort to substances such as drugs,beer, and weed to numb their pain and escape reality. The influence of these substances breeds a culture of violence among these young men, who are commonly known as "stone dealers." In their drug-induced state, they form groups and engage in fights that not only endanger their lives but also wreak havoc on the community.This perpetual violence instills fear in our hearts leaving us trapped in an enivronment of uncertainty.

I have been fortunate enough to receive admission offers fromThis is an incredible opportunity for me to gain a quality education and learn innovative approaches to tackle the challenges that plague my community.

"I am honored to share that I have been accepted into three remarkable universities: Western New Mexico University, Mississippi College, and New Mexico Highlands University.
