A Pen and Journal Set for Kristiona to get the emotions out after losing her friend

Posted Mar 9, 2023
Kristiona would love to be able to breathe, have permission to feel and let go. Life’s been a whirlwind for Kristiona lately with further health complications, uncertainty, and multiple losses. Recently a close friend committed suicide. Kristiona needs this to put her feelings down on paper and find release. To safely cope. A question on a lot of her friends' minds after losing their friend to this tragedy is who is next? Friends are worried it could be her and daily check-in to make sure she's safe and okay. This would allow her a safe outlet to feel the whirlwind of emotions and check in with herself.

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.
