College books for Kristiona as she heads back to school!

Posted Jul 11, 2021
Kristiona graduated with her bachelor's degree last year and is heading back to school to get some additional credits in early childhood! She is so excited because she loves to learn. She requested help with books as there isn't much financial assistance after you graduate from college. Kristiona is ready to start her fall semester and would love to be able to get a few of the books she needs for her classes. This will help her immensely to be able to study and do well in her classes.

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.
