vote for michelle chen in glamour's best of you contest

Just wanted to lend a hand to help spread the word about Michelle Chen, who is up for Glamour's "Best of You" Contest, which celebrates inspirational women from around the country. Your online vote could help her win.

The contest donates money to the charity of the winner's choice, and Michelle's charity is Bruin Initiative, an academic program for underserved high school students she founded with her sister during her first year of college. Here's a little blurb about her accomplishments:
Michelle Chen
Los Angeles, CA

Coming from a single-parent immigrant family, Michelle was empowered to create the Bruin Initiative, a program that offers free SAT and college preparation classes for underserved high school students from inner-city Los Angeles. While she is still in school, Michelle, her sister and their network of volunteers work together to bring students 10 weeks of SAT prep and college application help. In the last four years, the Bruin Initiative has had a 100% success rate in boosting these students' SAT scores and getting them into the colleges of their choice.
To win this contest, Michelle needs your vote. It just takes a few minutes, and for every vote received, Glamour will donate $1 to DKMS, the world's largest bone marrow donor center whose mission is to recruit bone marrow donors to help save the lives of leukemia patients.

It's all for great cause. Check out this Facebook event page Michelle's supporters put together: VOTE 4 MICHELLE - Glamour Magazine Contest. For more information about about the contest, and to vote for Michelle here.
