An Uber gift card for Kristiona to be successful in school

Posted Jan 18, 2022
Kristiona has gone back to college to get more education to help her work with young kids in a preschool setting! She loves what she gets to do every day and is enjoying her job and the kids she works with. This class she needs is only offered in the evenings and when it gets out, the bus is no longer an option! She will have a way to get to class but no way to get home. An Uber gift card will ensure she is able to safely get home while growing her teaching skills to help the young children she serves! The semester runs from January to May.

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.
