A New Desk for Kristiona to replace her 11 year old desk that is falling apart

Posted Mar 9, 2022
Kristiona is a hard working young women, she is a teacher and spends countless hours at her desk building lesson plans and grading papers. She has had the same desk for 11 years that was handed down to her by a family member. Though it served its purpose and got her through high school and college it is falling apart and missing pieces. She is in need of a new stable desk that will fit nicely in her apartment that she can continue her teacher duties comfortably.

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.
