Graduation Fee's for Kristiona to walk with her class

Posted Mar 6, 2020
Kristiona is graduating from Colorado Mesa University in May with a Bachelors in General Studies in Psychology and Sociology with a Minor in Social Work. It has been a long 6 year journey but one that has been so worth it. She so badly wants and deserves to walk in the upcoming ceremony surrounded by her cohort, and greatest supporters without any worry of the financial burden. Life was never easy but through her persistence and her own fierce fire and motivation, Kristiona has been able to conquer her dreams and goals. Graduation is the final hurdle, and Kristiona can not wait to walk with the rest of her class!

Kristiona is 28 years old and lives in CO

Originally, Kristiona was placed in Foster Care at the age of two where she was adopted, only to again be bounced around from foster home to foster home at the age of nine. She was adopted and then returned to foster care where she aged out. Kristiona became independent and started her college journey and has been successful at it despite everyday obstacles and medical issues. Kristiona has graduated from CMU with her Bachelor's degree and is looking at continuing her education to work with children. She currently works with an early head start preschool as a teacher and enjoys every moment. Kristiona is committed to breaking a generational cycle of abuse and lack of education. Her ultimate goal is to own and run a summer camp for children in foster care, that is not only fun, but can also provide them with therapeutic and mentoring supports.
