A silk bonnet for Ariah to maintain healthy hair

Posted Dec 21, 2023
Ariah has curly hair and enjoys protecting her curls. A bonnet will help Ariah ensure the health of her curls and allow her to style her hair the night before school. It will give her more time to get ready in the morning so she is on time for school.

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.

"Dear Ariah, take care of your curls and your precious body and spirit. Keep reading. Keep nerding. Keep living in the world that you create with your heart and mind. Most importantly, remember that education is for EVERYONE. People said kids like me don’t go to college but now I’m earning my masters degree. Be yourself and find your people. Bless you, you are made of love and stars "
