A bike for Mercedes, a former foster youth and college student

Posted Feb 14, 2019
Not only is Mercedes a college student, but she is also a mom of two. She works incredibly hard taking care of her children while also putting herself through college. Mercedes would love a bike to help her get across her incredibly large campus.

Mercedes is 27 years old and lives in Riverside, CA

Mercedes is an emancipated foster youth with a passion for giving back to her community. She successfully completed her studies at a two year college first before transferring to her current four-year university. She is a great role model for her two children her son who is 7 and her daughter who is 5. Mercedes doesn’t plan to stop her studies with her bachelor’s degree; she plans to enroll in a master’s program at UCLA.
