One letter rewrites teen's future
In tonight's Rewrite we shared with you the story of a New York City teenager named Senait. Her family came to the United States nearly 20 years ago fleeing a war in the African nation of Eritrea.
Her story was first told in this video from the Young Women's Leadership Network. Senait was helped by the YWLN's CollegeBound Initiative which "empowers young women and men to realize their higher education and life potential by placing full-time college guidance experts in high-need public schools."
