If money were no object, what would you do to make the world a better place? I would like to set up a scholarship fund targeted toward helping minorities fund their college education. I would also like to travel around the country helping students prepare for college, including filling out financial aid information and admissions applications. I would also like to talk to them about the benefits of a college education.
