Meet TJF Art Scholarship recipient, Ani Mayo.

Name: Ani Mayo

School: Howard University

Scholarship: Tom Joyner Foundation, Fine Arts Scholarship.

 I want to thank the Tom Joyner Foundation for supporting artists and giving us a chance to finish our education. Throughout my college career, I have learned the importance of the statement “It takes a village”.

Sometimes students are working more than 2 jobs, taking a full load of classes to graduate on time, while simultaneously drowning in college loans just to reach their goals. With organizations like the Tom Joyner Foundation, artist have a helping hand during their college careers. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for thinking of us and releasing us from the financial stress that blocks and destroys our creative freedom. I am proud to say that because of the Tom Joyner Foundation Scholarship I was able to spend more time focusing on my craft and developing my post-graduation goals instead of worrying about dropping out of school.

I am currently living in Los Angeles working on becoming a Talent Manger and this would not have been possible without my family, God,  and the Tom Joyner Foundation!
