Julia has overcome so many obstacles in her life including her own personal battles with emotional, mental, and physical health. With struggling parents and her mom’s cancer diagnosis, Julia stepped up to work and take care of her parents at a young age and had to put her education on hold. Her mother passed away just shy of a year ago, and she had to find a place for her and her father to live. In the middle of everything, she fell and broke her back, keeping her out of work for an extended period of time. All the while, Julia was determined to finish high school and get her degree. She recently got her GED and is following her dreams to become a journalist.
Your gift provided Julia with the money needed to get a laptop, as moves away to start college in January.
