The HIGH-Program is a necessary life chance for non-traditional students such as myself. Within this aesthetically beautiful and fast changing environment called Wayne State University and the City of Detroit. The HIGH program is a life raft for motivated and talented people who lack the necessary tools to compete in the University environment, Access to resources is the necessary thing that’s needed to have success as well as a peace of mind. The concept of the HIGH Program is a model for life regardless of the circumstances in life that make life difficult. The HIGH- Programs perspective from my opinion is that from the recipients to the administrators the HIGH philosophy is one of self-motivation and the theme of not settling for mediocrity in no way fashion or form. The HIGH Program is giving me the opportunity to be a greater role model and to lead by example. The HIGH Program is a light at the end of the tunnel that says if you’re willing to help yourself then there are other people in this world who hold those same values and beliefs and will invest in your future because productivity and positivity is the key to success!
