    Cambridge Reviews

    Cambridge is for those who wish to explore more than lines on a map. It’s for diving into history and traveling beyond "The New World." Embodying all there is to learn, explore, breathe, create, and dream big dreams. Where your children will arrive bright-eyed, their knowledge expanding well beyond the typical classroom. Harvard, MIT, BU and Lesley all within a stones' throw, Cambridge was built to develop minds and encourage creativity. Rowing, Biking, Reading and Writing, farmers markets, an endless search for healthy alternatives, and clean living, reside here. Competition, debate and success, one’s sole goal. Sugar-coating moments are rare, for we are fierce in our convictions. Politeness, decorum, an ever-changing residency, leave behind a youthful spirit. Whether a young couple on the move or a senior learning to move again, Cambridge will energize you in ways you 've never imagined.
    Bring your body and mind to Cambridge... You can only GROW from here!
    Cambridge, the city across the river from Boston. If you are a transplant like me, you may have mistaken Cambridge for just another part of Boston. A grave mistake according to the locals. After spending a few years in Massachusetts, I see why. Cambridge is the hip, convenient place that Boston wishes it was. The red line takes you were you want to go and catches on fire far less than the green line. From excellent club venues that offer a variety of entertainment, from live music by both local artists and those nationally known, to dance nights of all genres. There are a multitude of restaurants to choose from. From amazing Ramen and Sushi at the Asian market in Lesley College, to the outstanding pizza at Cinderella's, or comfort southern food at Tupelo, you just cant go wrong. Not to mention their top notch education, including but not limited to Harvard University. Whether you are here for food, fun or knowledge, Cambridge is the place to be.
    Michael was diagnosed with many disabilities at the age of 5. ADHD,OCD,anxiety, are some. I was told he would never finish high school . He never gave up. He had behavior modification , extensive therapy, put on multiple medications that didn't work, studied twice as long as his friends . I always told him to reach for the stars. And he is almost there. This money is for living expenses and school related items. I am a single mother and am currently not working due to the fact that my father has terminally ill and need constant care. I am currently doing all this. Thankyou for considering his application
