Scholarship Offers Opportunity for LBT Women

Three LBT women. Three different stories. One common denominator.

Bridget Pelaez started out wanting to be a nurse.  But as she finishes nursing school, she’s decided that she wants to further her education to become a doctor of osteopathic medicine.

Charrise Alexander, a law student at the University of Miami, teaches Street Law at Breakthrough Miami, an academic enrichment program for students from disadvantaged communities in Miami-Dade.  After graduation, she plans to take the Bar and work at a law firm in Washington D.C.

Kim Ehly is completing her Master of Social Work in May 2013, and intends to open a private practice as a psychotherapist and life coach.  She also created her own theater company, Kutumba Theatre Project, which premiered the award-winning play, Baby GirL, a production she wrote and directed.
