Meet a Say Yes Scholar: Jewell

“Everything I’ve done and where I am today is because of Say Yes. Without Say Yes, I would not have been able to come to Niagara. I wouldn’t have been able to afford it. And if I wasn’t here, I don’t think I would have been able to find my passion for communications.” —Jewell Eason, Junior at Niagara University on a Say Yes Buffalo scholarship.
