A PlayStation 4 for Cara's graphic design aspirations

Posted May 13, 2020
Cara is an incredibly gifted artist and is specifically passionate about graphic design. It would be great for her to have a high quality system that makes game designs pop. Being given this system would be a huge motivation to her as many of the people she most admires are gamers who she watches playing on this system. This gift would be a bright spot in the midst of a very hard time for this young woman and would be something that she continually looks back to and is encouraged by. When asked why she wanted a PlayStation4, Cara said "It would mean a lot to me, honestly. It would help me find a fun distraction and coping mechanism to have, especially during this time. I would be eternally grateful towards whomever is willing to gift such a thing to me."

Cara is 17 years old and lives in Baltimore, MD

Cara is a wonderful young woman who has been and continues to be so resilient in the face of many hardships. She is an incredibly gifted artist and is specifically passionate about graphic design. Her creativity, passion, and ability to inspire others are only a few of the most wonderful things about her. Her dream is to attend school for graphic design and to create video games. She is currently a very active participant in life skills classes that are preparing her for a successful transition out of foster care.
