Join Us For The Coca-Cola #ForTheDream Education Bilingual Twitter Party! @CocaCola #Ad

*This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Dime Media and Coca-Cola.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.

    I can still remember all of the educational goals and dreams that I started mapping out for bot of my sons from as early as when they were in my womb.  Education is a central focus among Latino families with so many planning for their child to be the first to attend college in the United States. This summer Coca-Cola and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund teamed up to make a difference and help more families achieve their education goals. The #ForTheDream program is helping Latino families and students prepare, plan and pay for their college education, and raising awareness of the college resources available to them.

  1. I would love to help support! Feel free to message me (at sign) Fashion Beyond forty on Twitter and remind me to support by tweeting! I have to say I am HORRIBLE at remembering twitter parties and honestly have never been involved in one although it is something I plan to get better at. I really do not even understand how they function. I DO however believe in this cause and think it is awesome that such a big brand is behind it!
    As for me, I have not been in college for years and did not have such a great experience due to LACK of support so I think that being supported while in college (emotionally, encouraged, even some financial help) is a MAJOR thing and we need more of it!
    I hope that all the goals are reached in this campaign!

  2. My mom inspired my college dreams. She didn’t attend a 4-year college and wanted me to go. I started reading before kindergarten and loved math workbooks. I’m really grateful for that. She didn’t have the means to pay for college, I signed out a ton of student loans, but the money didn’t matter; what mattered was the love and support she gave for me for a solid educational base and the personality to be a hard worker and lifelong learner. I’m grateful that I was given all of that attention so that college was a reality for me. My life in college was very different than others since I knew that my parents both worked multiple jobs while I was growing up. I knew that college was a luxury and key to a better life. OK — wow, I just shared a mouthful, but your post really inspired me to share.

  3. Other than just pushing me to go to college, there were no specific dreams in particular. Just four more years of school!

  4. I heard about this online and thought that it looked like so much fun!! I was only able to go to college for a short time, due to the dream careers that I have not being attainable. We are saving for our son to go and he’s changed his mind a few times, but we’re trying to lead him to make the best decision!

  5. Both my parents had dreams of me going to college but my Dad was my biggest inspiration. He always encouraged me and pushed me to do my best. He was my biggest cheerleader in everything I did. I was glad I made both there dreams come true.

  6. My grandparents were huge supporters of my college education. They boarded me for a few years, contributed to my tuition, and helped me get a job. They also helped me establish good spending habits.

  7. I did not go to college, but… My Granddaughter did. She Graduated Summa Cum Laude and is now going for her masters degree. She studies very hard and I am so very proud of her. Not only does she study hard, but she also works so she can continue her education.

  8. After having four kids I decided to go back to school. It was tough. But my family was a big support and made it much easier on me

  9. This is a great cause. My son in law works teaching ESL to parents after school at a local middle school. So many of them need the extra help with getting their kids into and through college. There are plenty of first generation college students that I knew, so I know how important it is to have the extra support and help with following your dreams.

  10. It is never too late to go to school. I am even thinking of going back!

  11. My parents have always supported me in everything, I’ve been very lucky that way.
    What a great sounding twitter party x

    My mom was my biggest support! She helped me have the confidence to go after my dreams!
