Why I Deserve A College Makeover:
We have been a single income family for many years, it wasn’t until recently that I started to work full time making just a little over minimum wage. We have always budgeted and tried to spend our money wisely. Due to Covid-19 my husband has been forced to take a 10% pay cut. We are still grateful he has a job but finances will be tight and this would help so much! I would love to be the winner of the NIACC Extreme Makeover and show my kids that anything is possible no matter what age you are!
Danielle Vance – Charles City, IA
Why I Deserve a College Makeover:
I have survived a lot of tough situations throughout my life from a young age. I have worked hard and persevered. I have spent time being trying to find myself and have now reinvented myself. I am able to look in the mirror today and be proud of the family I built, the business I’m building, and the woman that looks back at me. I survived. I should be the winner because I am ready to thrive at NIACC and beyond for my family and for myself.
