Camila is a caring and compassionate college student who has a heart for children with special needs. She grew up with an adopted sister with autism, and decided to pursue a degree in Special Education to care for children like her. While her big heart and steady determination have guided her through many important milestones, Camila has faced unfathomable challenges from a very young age and is at risk of repeating the cycle of an orphan.
Unable to rely on the stability and love of forever family, Camila was born into and grew up in several transient environments that did not provide the tools she needed to become an independent adult. She spent the last 6 years in an institution designed to care for much younger children, which limited her ability to build age-appropriate life skills. While making it to college is a huge accomplishment and evidence of her drive to succeed, without devoted intervention amongst peers, Camila is at risk of aging out of care without the life skills she needs to support herself.
Now that she has entered AGCI’s Dream Home, Camila has the opportunity to complete her degree in Special Education while receiving the crucial physical, emotional, and spiritual support she needs to thrive as a healthy, independent, and empowered adult. By sponsoring her, you can ensure that Camila continues to receive the guidance and love she needs. With your support, she can break the cycle of an orphan and become the Special Education teacher who helps others lead fulfilling lives too.
