I Have Risen - Essays by Ron Brown Scholars

Originally published in 2006 in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the Ron Brown Scholar Program, I Have Risen - Essays by African American Youth, is an inspirational collection of 50 essays written aspiring by Ron Brown Scholars. It tells the incredible stories of minority youths who overcame numerous obstacles in their lives – from living in extreme poverty to surviving in some of America’s toughest neighborhoods – and translated that hardship into an unrelenting commitment to better themselves and their world. The book allows readers to encounter the personal perspectives of the young students whose narratives were written as part of the RBS application process during their senior year in high school. The stories capture the essence of the human spirit, giving I Have Risen the dynamic ability to inspire young people of from all backgrounds.
