My summers at Horizons, when I was a newly-arrived immigrant struggling to make my way through middle and upper school, transformed my life. At Horizons, I received the academic support which was critical in enabling me to catch up - and keep up - with my classmates at school. Horizons also gave me confidence - to dive (literally) into the deep end of the pool. Horizons, and its sponsoring school (New Canaan Country School), set me on a trajectory which led to all that followed for me including serving on the Board of Horizons National. I support Horizons because I know every day what a difference it makes in young peoples' lives - please join me in giving to this most worthy cause.
My heartfelt thanks,
Amy Chan Downer (Horizons Summer Enrichment Program 1970, 1971, 1972)
