I am in my senior year of high school. My current GPA is a 4.0. I enjoy playing basketball and being creative in all things. Being a part of the, “One Hundred Team” has truly changed my life . I know it may sound cliche but Change for A Hundred, (CFAH) is one of those things you will tell your children about when you get old.Thanks

Hey! I am a senior and an  Academic Advisor of Change for a Hundred. My GPA is a 4.0 and I hope to get a higher GPA this year. My favorite sports team is Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga League. I enjoy the simple things in life, I like listening to Vaporwave, and love to laugh and smile.

Academic Advisor

Hello there, I am a senior at MPA. I work as an Academic  Advisor for the, “One Hundred Team”. I took this role so I can help students with their academic needs. Not only do I assist students in need, but I also provide help and information to our tutors. I currently hold a 4.0 GPA. I like to write because it gives me another way to express myself. One thing I really hate is being called smart. I've never thought of myself as smart, I just really like doing my homework.

What's up!! I am a sophomore and currently a tutor in the, Change for a Hundred program. Previously, my GPA was a 4.0 and I am striving for a higher one, due to my first year in AP and college classes. I enjoy working, helping, and talking to my fellow teachers and peers! One of my favorite quotes is, "If  someone shows you who they are , believe them." (Maya Angelou). If you approach me be 100% with me. I enjoy life in general!!! 



Hi! I am a sophomore. My GPA is currently a 4.0! I love to play sports, especially basketball. Even though I started playing late, I am playing to get better. I also love to sing and I believe that I am a good singer (hopefully!). Not to sound broad or "cheesy" but I actually enjoy helping students who are struggling academically.

We have a passion for helping our           peers reach their academic goals and motivate them to keep 100% in all classes.
