Simone Biles starts scholarship for foster kids


By Sarafina Wright, Washington Informer

American gymnast and Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles recently began her new journey as a college student at the University of the People and she wants to help other foster children such as herself follow the same path.

As a global ambassador for the university, Biles said a namesake scholarship fund will be available to foster children to help them and others achieve their collegiate dreams.

“Being a foster child myself, I know what it means to have the odds stacked against you,” Biles said. “Life circumstances shouldn’t define you or keep you from your goals. I want to help remove barriers that keep a college degree out of reach for those that truly want it.”
