For me personally, being an Amherst ABC scholar, it’s helped me really prepare for the next chapter in my life, which is college. I feel like A Better Chance makes you an overall better person and makes you more self-sufficient and more adult-like. When I say more adult-like, I mean you develop many skills that adults have: independence, responsibility, honesty, a hard-working attitude, and many other qualities that are beneficial. Being an ABC scholar has really been truly “A Better Chance”, and one that I can honestly say I will enjoy, love, and appreciate for the rest of my life. (June 2012)
