University of Rochester
Who am I: I’m Devante Bignall, I’m 18 years old and I’m from Bridgeport, CT. I am currently a senior here at the Eagle Academy for Young Men, I’m Salutatorian of my class, and am going to University of Rochester in the fall.
What makes me unique: I draw and play the piano, but really makes me unique is my interest in business and helping my community. At Eagle, I am part of the Junior 100, which is a program in which we learn how to create a business plan. Through the Junior 100, I started an online service that provides tutors and teachers to students who need academic help. Through this service, I am able to give back to my community.
What I want to do: I want to major in finance and become an investment banker. I love numbers and want to be able to interact with the leadership of big companies.
Why I’m on DonateMe: I’m on Donateme because my family contribution necessary for me to go to University of Rochester is too much for us to pay. Any donation, large or small, would really help out. Thank you in advance everyone.
