A Shopping Experience at the Mall for Kristiona to pick out a special dress for graduation

Posted May 17, 2023
Kristiona is graduating with multiple teaching certificates on May 20th. It would mean the world to er to go shopping for a new dress to wear. She was looking online and there are a few that she likes at different stores, however she is kinda picky with dresses and won’t feel confident in the right one until she tries it on. This gift card for the mall will allow her to choose the dress that makes her feel the most joy and confidence for the big day, as well as being comfortable.

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.
