SplendidAngel's picture

This very helpful for all of the high school and college angels. Would you like to help me with me an angel project? The project consists of college angels recording their selves and giving a tour of their campus with all of the school's information. I wanted the videos to go on YouTube and the high school angels could use it as a resource. I thought this would be a wonderful idea because I am an uprising senior and my college search is coming closer to an end and I need to find my list if I plan on doing early action/decision. If you are considering on helping me, can you send me an email to sincerely.annie@gmail.com. We can create a blog and we can update the angels with scholarships, the college angels' campus tours, etc. Thank you and have a nice day.
