Greetings and Happy New Year to all. We at AMHF are steadily moving forward into 2019 with high hopes in meeting our goals for this year. In the last quarter of 2018, we were excited to announce a new board member, Mr. Joe Goethals, deputy district attorney of San Mateo county and now we are equally excited to welcome Ms. Charissa McManis.
As we step into Fall, we meet the challenges before us with hope and willful determination. The darkness of summer is now behind us and the murderer who took our beloved Ariana has been put away. We ask for your prayers that he stays there for the rest of his life.
The Ariana Mae Hatami Scholarship Endowment was created in honor of this young woman by her parents; Farzin and Julie Hatami. Ariana’s life was brutally and deliberately taken by a violent offender on Dec. 17, 2016. Ariana was a business major at San Francisco State University and was determined to graduate in a field that she was exceptionally talented.
Ariana Mae Hatami Foundation has established a meaningful partnership with San Francisco State University as this institution is ground zero for Ariana. She had fully committed herself to their Business program and was slated to graduate in Spring of 2018. As we grow Ariana’s foundation, one of our main objectives is to support the university students who are overcoming the effects of domestic abuse with financial scholarships.
