Hi all,

I am 18 years old and I've been a ward of the state all my life. I've been moved from home to home, school to school and never really had any stability in my life. Up until recently, DCFS awarded me with the option of independent living with I got with no hesitation. But, there is so much DCFS will do for me. I applied for the DCFS Scholarship and got denied. I don't know how, but it happend. I just graduated High School this past June and no one from my family attended. I'm grateful my caseworker did come, but at the end of the day, I knew it was my accomplishment and nothing could take that away. However, I am using this website to help gain some type of income for my transition off to college next month. I will be attending Southern Illinois in Carbondale!!( A future Saluki) :)

But with your generous donations and help, you could make this a better experience for me. I would gladly accept anything that would be given and trust me, you'll be glad you helped. I will make it to the top of the top (maybe become President) and make someone proud of me. Don't be saddend by life, help me make a difference in it.
