A little about the founder...........Erica Waller-Hill, M.Ed.
For me, being a wife and a mother of two girls, Capri and Nylah, I find myself on
an average helping with after school activities, assisting with homework and preparing dinner. Being a working
mother trying out for the Olympic Team (2008) and directing a school center full time was not an easy task, but
an awesome experience.
No matter what challenges you're faced with in life you can achieve excellence at
whatever you dream! I find my strength and encouragement in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Knowing who
you are daily and your purpose keeps you grounded.
Growing up, there were so many opportunities for me to choose another path, but realizing
the choices you make, ultimately determines your future. I will admit that I didn't always make the right
choices, but I eventually got it right!
As a native of Bucks County, I graduated from Harry S. Truman High School and went
on to further my education at Widener University in Chester, PA. At Widener University, I studied Early Childhood Education,
Liberal Studies with a concentration in Applied Supervision, with a Masters Degree in Education. In January of 2018, I published
my first book; It's Bigger Than Me." Which you can find at: www.ericawallerhill.com I'm
passionate about the work that is ahead of me, seeing the children and adults that I've met on this journey is great!
The questions that some of the children and even adults have about their own dreams, made me realize that my journey
was so much bigger and it must continue.
My "Vision" is to see our youth attain the inevitable, by believing that they hold the power to create
and shape how they live and the choices they make. We will help youth attain and reach their goals and continue to be
a community resource. In a community where dreams are crushed- this is a dawning of a new day where
Dreams are cultivated.
