A pair of Red Fila's for Kristiona who has a bright personality

Posted Dec 8, 2022
Kristiona needs to replace her shoes with one that fit. She recently fell in love with these Red Fila's and was torn to make a choice between those and another pair of shoes and ultimately chose the cheaper pair. She would be very grateful to be able to have the shoes she really wanted.

Kristiona is 28 years old and lives in CO

Originally, Kristiona was placed in Foster Care at the age of two where she was adopted, only to again be bounced around from foster home to foster home at the age of nine. She was adopted and then returned to foster care where she aged out. Kristiona became independent and started her college journey and has been successful at it despite everyday obstacles and medical issues. Kristiona has graduated from CMU with her Bachelor's degree and is looking at continuing her education to work with children. She currently works with an early head start preschool as a teacher and enjoys every moment. Kristiona is committed to breaking a generational cycle of abuse and lack of education. Her ultimate goal is to own and run a summer camp for children in foster care, that is not only fun, but can also provide them with therapeutic and mentoring supports.
