An ipad for Kristiona to find comfort in music therapy

Posted Oct 11, 2023
Kristiona has recently started music therapy to heal her brain from damage caused by multiple traumatic brain injuries. Having an ipad will help Kristiona access the therapy at home to make the daily commitment to music therapy in addition to the office visits she participates in. This therapy has been a lot of emotional work for Kristiona and is important for her healing journey.

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.
