Hiking boots for Ariah to explore the outdoors

Posted Sep 18, 2023
Ariah has joined local bike & nature groups. However, she needs a pair of hiking boots to protect her ankles and from the cold weather arriving quickly. Also, she chose to go camping for her birthday in November, and these boots will set her up for success.

Ariah is 15 years old and lives in NM

Ariah came into care several years ago and has not let it slow her down. She is academically driven and will not settle for anything less than her best. Ariah is very fond of books, particularly the Harry Potter series, and spends much of her time learning something new through books. She's a self-proclaimed "nerd." Ariah also enjoys spending time outdoors, including walking, camping, observing nature, and biking. Additionally, Ariah is excited about going to college but is often told that foster care kids "don't even graduate high school," and she is using this as her driving force to excel in school.
