“I’m excited to be a Millennium Fellow because ‘I’m a Soul on Fire with a voice for many’!”

About the Millennium Fellow
Christie Cordon is a woman with goals and aspirations who has overcome challenges that many would have given up long before. She believes that failure is not an option for her because she is a single-mother thriving to give her child the best life possible. She is a junior working on her BA in Psychology and working towards her CADC. Working with survivors and helping them heal from their trauma and combining it with animal therapy is what she is moving forward with. She believes in volunteer work and she likes to say that she is paying it forward. She is also a One Family Scholar, which is a comprehensive college scholarship program that breaks the cycle of poverty and family homelessness for low-income single parents. Christie believes that the skills and experience gained from this program will help her fulfill her goals so she can be able to help others. Her goal is to be the best role model for her son and guide him to follow his dreams and to fight for his desires with all of his compassion.
“Never give up, why because I am a Soul on Fire!”
