Posted Oct 12, 2023
TaNina is a student-parent at the University of California. She has to attend classes and then work which is scheduled back-to-back. In order to make it to work and classes that are on the opposite ends of campus on time she will need a scooter to do so. This gift would be so helpful to TaNina.

TaNina is 19 years old and lives in CA

TaNina is a resilient student currently enrolled at UC Riverside, where she is pursuing her passion for art. In her second year at UCR, she is determined to overcome the odds stacked against her.

Her experiences have shaped her into a remarkable individual who is committed to breaking barriers and creating a brighter future for herself and her child. With a strong resolve, TaNina aspires to earn her degree in art, using her creative talents to express herself and inspire others. Beyond her undergraduate studies, she envisions a future filled with continued education and personal growth.
