Winta Tesfa from Denver East High School


Crowley College Prep Scholarship Recipient

As an Eritrean-American, I strive to stay involved and educated about  my culture.  The Eritrean Youth of Colorado is a productive program in  which Eritrean children from all ages eleven to eighteen get involved  in voluntary projects to help Eritrea in any way.  Book donations, car  washes and fundraising celebrations are all examples of the activities  our members take part in.  As one of the older members, I educate the  younger members and encourage peers to join. This group has been a  major part of my life in terms of helping me understand and be proud  of what it truly means to be Eritrean.
