A cool pair of shoes for Elinzon who will be a senior this year

Posted Aug 25, 2023
Elinzon has worked extremely hard over the summer to overcome his language barriers. He worked hard in summer school and was able to pass the two classes he needed to be able to graduate on time. Elinzon is very thankful and appreciative for all the help he has received since coming into foster care. He is looking forward to graduating high school and attending cosmetology school to become a nail technician and hair stylist. A new pair of shoes would be a great gift for Elinzon.

Elinzon is 17 years old and lives in VA

Elinzon is an amazing young man who is thriving in his foster home. Elinzon didn't speak English when he was placed in foster care, but he has worked so hard, and now English is his second language. Elinzon has worked hard in school. He has taken advantage of every opportunity presented to him while in foster care. Elinzon wants to go to college when he graduates and study fashion design and cosmetology.
