Success Story

Bitanya's family immigrated to the US in 2007, seeking a better life. At Holy Family Elementary, she received tremendous support as the sole English-speaking person in her household. With the help of a CISE scholarship, Bitanya attended Seton High School where she excelled. While in high school she founded "The Grateful Foundation," a nonprofit to raise funds for her village in Ethiopia. Bitanya now attends the University of Cincinnati on a full ride scholarship. She studies marketing and continues the work with her nonprofit organization.
