The first in her family with the opportunity to attend college Atarah successfully pursued the study of Sciences at the College of St. Benedict-St. John’s University in Minnesota. Her wish was to be a Medical Doctor, her passion and compassion having become evident during her stint as a summer student at Doctor’s Hospital in The Bahamas. From a single mother household, Atarah knew that without full financial support, her dream was unattainable and she doggedly and persistently set about securing multiple sponsors who were prepared to sacrifice to assist her in some small way. Falling short, The Chance Foundation stepped in to enable this determined young lady to complete a 4 year Degree in 3 years with excellent grades. Atarah attributes much of her success to the encouragement and support of her strong mentoring connection at The Chance Foundation.
