This is a story about a NAHMA scholar, by a NAHMA scholar.
Rhasaan Nichols is a former multi-year NAHMA Scholarship recipient from North Philadelphia. He now lives in LA and works in the film industry. We asked Rhasaan to tell his story as a way to help build the NAHMA scholarship fund and capacity even further. We were already so proud of Rahsaan as a scholar, and this year we got to work with him as a colleague -- what could be better than that?!
The NAHMA Educational Foundation works to support low-income students, living in affordable housing, to pursue their higher educational dreams. We work with and hear from the hundreds of deserving scholars living in NAHMA affiliate low-income housing communities who benefit from our $2500 annual scholarships.
