Bailey, student2student participant
Even with all of his success, Bailey knows how important it is to finish his schooling.
“There was a temptation for a while of dropping out and going full time – completing my apprenticeship at a young age. But I think that sticking to school is the best thing that someone can do, because it gives you so many opportunities afterwards,” said Bailey.
Having financial support for Bailey’s education was a huge relief for the battling family. But Terina never expected that generous strangers would become such an important part of Bailey’s life.
“The impact has been great. Not only financially, but also morally,” said Terina.
“[To The Smith Family supporters] I’d like to say thank you for all that you do for all kids. It’s a wonderful thing to help out others. It’s something that they’re going to value through their whole lives,” said Bailey.
