January 2018 Accolades

Sneha Dave (2016) reached the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro with her Coke Scholars hat in hand on Christmas Day! In her own words, “This was a special moment, because my freshman year of high school, I could barely walk five steps, but just a few years later I was able to complete one of seven summits – the beginning of a lifelong dream! More than anything, I hope this can show people with chronic illnesses that recovery both physically and mentally is absolutely possible.” Hear more about Sneha’s story here.
