About Rashid Powell

Who am I: Hi, my name is Rashid Powell.  I’m 17 years old and I attend the Eagle Academy for young men.  I was born and raised in the Bronx, NY.  I was accepted to Syracuse University, and I will be attending there this coming Fall.

What makes me unique:I wrestle for the Eagle Academy, and am also one of the team captains. Through wrestling I had the opportunity to teach and lead my classmates, and the leadership I developed on the mat, I try to incorporate in every aspect of my life. Throughout my college career, I want to continue to develop myself as a leader, and be the best person that I can be.

What I want to do:It’s been my dream to become a doctor for a while. I think I connect well with children and am really interested in majoring in chemistry in order to become a pediatrician.  

Why I’m on DonateMe:I grew up in a single parent household with two sisters.  Growing up was difficult without a father figure, and my mother supported throughout our whole childhood. My mother does her best to provide for us, however, her contribution towards my tuition will barely defray the cost. Any help I can get on this site would be much appreciated!!
