“I created UMEPAM to give those who don't have a dream something to fight for. I remember going to school with an empty stomach, carrying my books, and getting sent back home because my mother couldn’t pay for my school. Five years ago if you asked me what I want to do in my life, my answer would’ve been I don’t know. Thanks to Mrs. Eular Robinson, Kathy Maryska, and many others I’m now living an unexpected life that I never even dreamed of. I’m happy that many others are joining me in this journey to do great things, because there’s so much to do in a small amount of time and I know I couldn’t do it alone.” - Bendsondy Pierre
