About the Millennium Fellow
Who am I? I’m a woman with goals and aspirations who has overcome challenges that many would have given up long before. Failure is not an option for me because I’m a single-mother thriving to give my child the best life possible. I’m a Sophmore working on my BA in Psychology and working towards my CADC. Working with survivors and helping them heal from their trauma and combining it with animal therapy is what I’m moving forward with. I believe in volunteer work and I like to say I’m paying it forward. My goal is to be the best role model for my 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!
