Textbooks for Angela who hopes to inspire younger foster youth

Posted Oct 7, 2021
Angela is asking for a gift card to help a younger foster youth who is just starting college, pay for some educational expenses. She remembers how difficult it was for her back then and is passionate about being a mentor for others who are going through similar struggles. Angela has such a kind heart and would be so happy to be able to pass this gift along to her mentee.

Angela is 49 years old and lives in Dumfries, VA

Angela is extremely proud of her two biggest accomplishments: raising her, now adult, children on her own as a single mother and graduating college! Although she finished college later than most people, she never lost her determination to achieve her lifelong goal of obtaining a degree. Her biggest struggle with foster care was not being able to locate the original documentation of her birth when she was adopted by an American family. Having to fight to become a "legal" citizen was long and draining process, made harder by the loss of these documents. However, Angela looks back at these times and thinks of how she was able to persevere through it come out of it as a stronger person.
