A Kiln Coffee gift card for Kristiona to enjoy a drink while studying

Posted Dec 18, 2022
Kristiona loves to visit local coffee shops and study for school. Kiln is one of her favorite places to go because the owners are just so kind and the atmosphere helps her to focus. She would enjoy a gift card to Kiln so she can grab a cup of coffee, support local, and get a good study session in next semester when school starts back up!

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.
