Get To Know Nurse Barbara Bicomba
I am honored to be one of the recipients of the sponsorship offered by Meriwether Foundation. Thanks to Meriwether Foundation's generous support I am the first in my class and family to attend college. Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered finaicial and academic challenges, but it has also helped me realize the value of a college education.
I came to know about Meriwether Foundation through my mother who works at Meriwether.
It was in 2013 in the month of June when U received an acceptance letter from Mwami School and Nursing to undergo a two year general nursing course. I went to see Nomvimbi Meriwether, President and Co-Founder of Meriwether Foundation. I talked to her and she told me there was no problem, she will help me. I literally sat in silence a good 20 minutes, I couldn't believe it. When I finally let myself believe it was true, I felt as if it was a sign from the universe telling me that I was finally headed in the right direction-that I would make it through.
All in all, Meriwether Foundation's act of kindness made an incredible difference in my life as well as my family's.
Thank you again and please do not down play the difference you have made, it means more than I can say. Through you God's love reaches children who are in difficulties and in need.
