"Erica pushed me to keep fighting when I felt like giving up!  I couldn't have gotten through my troubles without her."

"I never enjoyed reading until I met Erica.  If it weren't for her, I'm not sure I would enjoy it now." 

"Erica recognizes the importance of nourishing our youth.  She is patient, understanding, altruistic, selfless and dedicated.  Her calming demeanor is contagious and second only to her passion for bettering our tomorrow through inspiring youth today."
