Coming to Amherst A Better Chance has been a dream come true, and I am gaining a vast amount of knowledge not only in the classroom, but also in becoming more independent. Attending Amherst Regional High School has given me the confidence to demonstrate my leadership skills through being the president of Gardening in Environment Action Club, and to be a person who is not afraid to speak the truth. This house has given me the experience of a lifetime, and I am learning things I would not have at home in Queens, NYC. No longer am I another kid struggling through high school in New York, but I am now a strong, independent scholar who can strive for even the biggest of dreams. I have ABC to thank for that, and I am grateful. (June 2016)
