A story of hope from Mario

“I am grateful for my foster mom because she encouraged me to get out of bed and get my diploma. I’m in college now studying criminal justice, and my dream for the future is to get my master’s degree and PhD. Today, I find joy in the face of adversity. I want to share my experience and help others get through challenges. Helping people is one passion I have always had. I want to serve my community. I want my story of what I have achieved and what I have survived to help others.” Click here to learn more.
