A Nintendo Switch Lite for Zhay who uses video games to cope

Posted Oct 31, 2023
Zhay finds comfort in playing video games, and through his therapy sessions, he has learned that playing video games is one of his major coping mechanisms. His therapist feels giving him a chance to calm himself through video games will be huge for Zhay. Zhay would love to have a Switch of his own!

Zhay is 12 years old and lives in CA

Zhay's parents abandoned him last year. He was found living alone in the apartment by one of his family friends. He has been a victim of both physical and mental abuse. He is currently living in an emergency shelter, awaiting a foster family that will potentially be his home. Zhay is often described as funny, logical, and extremely smart. He is now in the fourth grade and has never skipped a day of school this year (a huge improvement since last year), and he always finishes homework before school gets out. Zhay loves trying new foods and escaping into the world of video games.
