Having grown up in the Chicago inner city, I am the benefactor of the help and support of many people. From concerned people in the community to high school coaches and teachers, you name it and they played a part in keeping me on the straight and narrow.
There were many heroes when I was growing up, helping to make a difference. I might very well owe my life to these heroes of the neighborhood.
Heroes still exist today. One such hero today is Laura Wilson of Wilson Daily Prep an online ACT & SAT test preparation website. Laura recently created GraphItForward.org a website that encourages people to donate their old unused graphing calculators. New graphing calculator can cost $100 or more and are not affordable for many disadvantaged students.
According to ACT Inc., the math problems on the “Mathematics” portion of the ACT exam can be solved without a calculator. However, students that take the ACT or SAT without a calculator are often at a disadvantage without one.
