Milena is artistic and highly technical, enjoying both the arts and studying engineering. She entered the government system when she was just 11 years old and spent the next seven years navigating school, relationships, and the transition to adulthood without the stabilizing presence of loving parents to guide her. Through all of the challenges of growing up in the system, Milena was inspired by her older sister to stay in school and continue pursuing her dreams. While she strived to provide a better future for herself, she struggled to find a place to study in the busy institution in which she was living and she was unable to practice the life skills she would need to live on her own.
Now that Milena is living in the Dream Home, she has the opportunity to complete her engineering degree while learning desired skills like cooking, time management, and budgeting. By sponsoring Milena, you can ensure that she continues to receive the guidance, love, and support she needs to reach her full potential and become a thriving, independent adult.
