April 26: Lobby Bake Sale for “She’s the First” – noon – 4pm

She’s the First is a national non-profit organization that provides scholarships to first-generation girls, in developing nations, to attend school from elementary school through high school. At the moment, they are still working on creating more scholarships to help these young women attend college, but as of now the scholarships are only for the K-12 level of education.

The young women who are given an opportunity to receive this free education, are also taught other skills to help them become “Global Citizens”. Some of these skills include: how to further develop their communities, managing money and finances, being an independent and critical thinker and many more. A lot of these young women tend to avoid abusive relationships, and endless cycles of poverty because they receive this education. And this shows the true importance of an education.

The STF chapter here at Indiana State University collects money each semester through various events (mainly monthly bake sales), and at the end of the semester we donate all the money to the main organization in New York. The bake sale are the most important parts of our semesters, because She’s the First began through simple bake sales where the founder raised money through selling tie-dye cupcakes.
