MEET THE FOUNDER
Tambryanna received her bachelor’s degree in Spanish with a minor in Political Science from Northern Illinois University. As the first college graduate in her family, Tambryanna has always been motivated to guide individuals from diverse backgrounds. She is involved in various missions that promote cross-cultural exchange, leadership and mentorship, social justice, and education equality. Since graduating, Tambryanna has devoted time to bringing college awareness to individuals from all walks of life to help them reach their success goals. She founded College4U to give back to first-generation students to expose them to the various paths to success. Additionally, Tambryanna has a passion for collaboration with entrepreneurs and organizations, believing that it takes a village to serve the community and guide young people for the real world. She has since continued her studies by pursuing a Master’s in Public Administration at the University of Maryland and intends to bring more change in education by developing College4U and helping underserved communities break barriers through faith, leadership, and increased understanding of financial literacy.
“Students are more likely to succeed when they have a strong support system, financial support, and their mental health needs are met. Therefore, collaboration is essential. Working with various businesses and community partners is how we bring awareness and opportunities to young individuals.”
