College for the Phoenix
Organized by: Heather Wilson
EVENT DATE Aug 25, 2014
Note: That is me in the photograph as I wish to fundraise on behalf of someone and I want to respect her privacy.
This fundraiser is for someone who I have grown to care very much for; a young woman who is a shining example of what rising above difficult circumstances means. This young woman was born to a mother who was drug-addicted who later left her in the care of a man who ruled with beyond an iron fist. He removed her from his home on her 18th birthday and despite promises to help her with college, he went back on those promises. She never knew her biological father.
This is not about judgment. We are all human. We all have our stories. This is about one girl who could have ended up a statistic, but instead is striving to make a life for herself; to write her own story and to live for a beautiful future despite a difficult past. She is flying out of the ashes. Please, help her spread those wings.
