A premium keyboard for Arek who wants to pursue her passion for music

Posted Aug 4, 2023
Arek is an incredibly hardworking student. She's currently working part-time after school to save up for music school. After she graduates this year, she hopes to pursue her passion for music and attend a great music program. Arek's birthday is coming up soon, and music is truly her therapy and escape. She's been dreaming of getting a fully functional keyboard with weighted keys so that she can practice at home and enhance her finger strength and technique. It would mean the world to her to receive such an amazing gift for her birthday.

Arek is 17 years old and lives in NE

Arek is a bright and fun young woman. She has been in foster care since 2018 and currently has no contact with her family. Arek is Sudanese, and it is very important to her to be placed with a Sudanese family to stay connected to her culture. Arek excels at school and finished last school year with a 3.8 GPA. She also holds a steady job at a nearby gas station, and they always have great things to say about her. Arek has suffered a lot of trauma in her life and is working hard with a mentor and her therapist to ensure her mental health needs are met so she can succeed as she moves into independent living in the next couple of years.
