An iPad Pro for Melissa who is excited for her internship

Posted Mar 21, 2019
Melissa is an emancipated foster youth who is an incredible artist. Melissa is an art major at a 4-year university and has the opportunity to complete an internship in animation this summer, which is her dream job! Melissa needs an iPad Pro and an Apple Pen so that she has portable access to Illustrator and Procreate for her digital artwork and portfolio distribution. This is a huge investment for a young college student, let alone one who has aged out of foster care to face the challenges of adulthood alone.

Melissa is 20 years old and lives in Riverside, CA

Melissa is a freshman at a university and has aspirations to go to graduate school. She has a while before she gets there. However, she was very in high school in leadership and sports and looks forward to getting involved on campus. Melissa has overcome a tremendous amount of adversity over the years but still maintains a positive attitude.
