Betsy DeVos` a women who believes in change, was born on January 8,1958 to the parents of Edgar and Elsa Prince in Holland, Michigan. Edgar Prince, her father, was an industrialist billionaire of the company Prince Corporation that supplied automobile parts. DeVos` education had begun at the Holland Christian High School, where she transitioned to the Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. At the Calvin College, she attained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Economics. Betty is married to Dick DeVos` the son of billionaire co-founder of Amway, Richard DeVos` and together they have four grown children Rick, Elissa, Andrea, and Ryan. DeVos` is currently a member of the Republican Party. Formerly, she was a member of the Republican National Committeewoman for Michigan from 1992-1997. She also served as the chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party.
The work that I have seen DeVos` do has certainly being inspiring as well as fulfilling. The fact that she puts God first in her work is admiring. DeVos` has been a philanthropist for many years and continues to do her work for the service of God. In 1989, her family started the Dick and Betsy DeVos` Family Foundation. The foundations that they have built on faith can encourage us to be brave in the work that we do. It takes a strong woman who has faith to fight for what they believe in. Betsy DeVos is an example of brilliance and determination. If we all had her strong will and faith there will be not limit to what we can do. As of 2015, their foundation made over 11 million in contributions. The DeVos` foundation have contributed an exceeding amount of money to hospitals, art organizations, Christian schools, evangelical missions, and so much more. Numerous organizations have received funds from the foundations such as the Center for Individual Rights and the Right to Life Michigan Educational Fund. Betsy DeVos` was on the board of directors for the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in 2004 where she was appointed by President Bush. Since she has left the Kennedy Center she has donated over 20 million to continue the performing arts. The best thing about Betsy is that she wants the children of America to have a chance. The devotion she has of being a philanthropist of education can be enlightening and the example of pure love. DeVos` has been an active participation in education has lead her and Dick trips to the Potters House Christian School. In this moment DeVos` was awaken with a spark to change education. In my opinion, education is an important factor in our world today. Children in developing countries do not always get the chance to learn and it is endearing to see DeVo`s take a stand. In the 1990s, DeVos` was on the boards of Children First American and the American Education Reform Council. These charities were focused on expanding the choice of education through vouchers and tax credit. In 1993, she and Dick contributed to the passing of Michigan’s first chart school bill. Currently, DeVos` serves as the 11th secretary of education. Check this article from New York Post.

In the past, there were many people who wanted to focus on higher education. Even the secretary of education wanted to show people that they could do better with a higher education. This was great for most people but it didn’t matter for the children who were not even able to get to the secondary part of their education. For many families living in poverty, this was a reality that they had to deal with regularly thanks to the issues that came along with poverty. Betsy DeVos knew that focusing on higher education was great but focusing on the basics of education was even better.
Through the foundation that Betsy DeVos created with her family, she was able to help create options for people who previously had none. This was something that made things better for those who were living in poverty and those who did not have those options before then. She wanted to show them that their lives would be so much better if they could get the right education. This didn’t mean trying to improve bad choices with public schools or working to make them “better.” It simply meant that she wanted to make sure that things would work better in different situations if people could get what they needed from educational sources aside from public schools.
