Denaisha Lesley-Coburn

Denaisha is a graduate of Boston Prep Charter School. She immediately went on to college at Farleigh Dickinson University after high school, but financial difficulties drove her back home after just one year. Now extremely studious and focused on success, she says she fully understands the dangers of taking too much time away from education. This fall, she enrolled at UMass Dartmouth to pursue a degree in mechanical engineering.
