As a little girl, I never would have imagined that I would be a college graduate with a job that I love. At a very young age I was shown that the world can be a very cruel place with some very cruel people. Three years ago my perception of the world changed completely because I met people like Ron Davis and all of the other Guardian Angels, who were more than willing to show me how different the world can be. If I didn’t have this scholarship, or the support of so many people involved with this scholarship, I do not know where I would be. I would like all of my Guardian Angels to know how much I appreciate all of your help and support. More importantly I would like to say thank you for all that you do.” – Abby

There is so much I can say about my final year at Colorado Mesa University. I’d like to start off by saying thank you to everyone who helped me along my journey to accomplish my dreams of being the first in my family to achieve a college education. This act of kindness has not gone unnoticed and has inspired me to help others in need….thank you for your support and guidance throughout my journey here at CMU.” – Alan

I am so thankful and honored to have such an incredible scholarship and family to support me through my collegiate journey. I would not have been able to follow my dreams in dance if it were not for the Guardian scholarship and our Angels.” – Jenni

On May 14th, 2016 I reached a very exciting goal that I have been working towards for the past five years. Statistically speaking, a study conducted in California reveals that only 10% of former foster youth will attend college and, of that 10%, only 3% will graduate. This saddening fact has made my recent achievement quite astonishing. As this was no easy task, I did not do it alone, I did this with the support of a few hundred hearts. I myself obtained two business degrees in Marketing and Finance, but I was able to do it because people with beautiful and generous hearts believed in me.” – Juanita
