Hi my name is Shalimar Mixon and I am here to tell you that foster future it’s not just a nonprofit organization for foster children who aged out it is a second home a family that a lot of us never had a support system out of this universe when the world told us no foster your future told us yes when the world told us we wouldn’t amount to anything foster your future told us shoot for the stars I am a living breathing testimony when I tell you foster your future has change my life help me grow and develop as a young professional not only this year do I get to graduate college but I get to graduate college at a high-level foster future is the elevation of greatness it is the definition greatness can be achieved it is the definition that all things are possible it is definition when you felt like all love and hope was goneFoster your future was there to give you the biggest hug again I say foster your future is my testimony to the world that greatness can be achieved with all odds are against you I promise you I remember when I was on the verge of being homeless worried about how and where I’m going to lay my head at night? what am I going to eat today? Do I know people who can give me gas money just so I can get to class everyday and I remember thinking who’s gonna believe me I remember my first time meeting with Ginny telling her why should I graduate when no one’s gonna show up to my graduation I remember her telling me I will show up and that’s all I needed to hear I needed to hear that someone was looking forward to me succeeding in life that I mean more than just a percentage on the scale that I am continuously judged by that I was bound for greatness and today I stand before you and I tell you that the shoes I walk in today are the shoes I’ll pass on for generations because foster your future tied the laces. -Shalimar Mixson
