Yaye had a clear picture of her future: she wanted to be a pediatrician. However, the path to her ideal career was clouded by challenges in the classroom. She needed support to reach her full potential and a road map to achieve her dream job.
By working with her Spark Mentor, Sara, at Aberdeen Asset Management, Yaye learned the importance of not only setting goals, but also creating a plan to make possibilities real. She became more focused in school, started preparing for high school and even began working with Sara on a financial plan for her college education.
Yaye credits Sara and Spark for giving her the skills she needed to succeed in school and get closer to her dream of becoming a pediatrician.
