Over the past year I have worked with the most amazing 18 year old young woman. She has overcome odds that most people are unable to and should never have to imagine. She has been in the foster system for over a decade. Both of her parents passed away while she was a child. She has not had a true home since she was a small child. She doesn’t have the same support that most children openly receive from their parents during college. There have been so many days she wanted to give up but has somehow remained strong. The day she graduated from high school was one of the proudest moments I have ever had. Her current goal is to attend college so she can one day inspire young girls like herself to stay strong. The obstacle she faces is how to afford college. She has applied for grants but doesn’t have a stable place to live. It would be a tragedy that someone so bright, so motivated, and so inspirational would end up on the streets due to lack of funding. Please help me send her to college.
