‘Motivation’ Scholarships for Teens Headed to College (1/3) – Leela

In 2018, we were honoured to award small, but meaningful scholarships to three young women, through the LA County Department for Children and Family Services. All three teenagers, who have grown up in the foster care system, are going to college!


We are incredibly moved and inspired by the fierce tenacity, ambition and resilience of these young women, and we hope you will be too. Read Leela’s story below.
