Rubin for Kids is a nonprofit devoted to recognizing and rewarding the achievement of personal goals at school, at home, or in the community. In this sense, the program is both achievement-centered, and need-based. We distribute Post High School Scholarships and Youth Achievement Awards to youth and young adults in Dane County, WI. Not only are we a 100% volunteer based organization but since there are almost no administrative costs, every dollar contributed goes to help a deserving area youth.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?
Currently, I'm working part time at the North side Willy Street Coop.
HOW DID RUBIN FOR KIDS HELP YOU ACHIEVE THAT?
Working at Willy Street Coop is not something I want to do for the rest of my life. I have a dream, and my dream is to become an accountant someday which RfK (Rubin for Kids) is helping in pursing my dream by giving me a scholarship to Madison College.
WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE DREAMS AND GOALS?
Being an accountant has always been my aspiration which I think is because I love working with numbers.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching movies and having a good time. I also enjoy doing volunteering services and helping children work on their homework.
HOW WOULD YOUR LIFE HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT IF RUBIN FOR KIDS WERE NEVER PART OF IT?
Rubin for Kids made me worry less about financial issues and focus more on my studies by providing me with a scholarship. This allowed me spent more time achieving my career goal because Rubin for Kids got my back. Thank you Rubin for Kids.
