Meet Keydra. A 19-year-old high school student in the Bronx, Keydra struggled academically but with the help of Lauren, her Foundling tutor, Keydra improved her grades, earned good scores on her Regents Exams and enrolled in an SAT class at Fordham University. Keydra says that Lauren has been really helpful in all areas of her life.
The Foundling’s tutoring program has given Keydra the motivation to further her education. She is considering several colleges and has high hopes for her future. In fact, Keydra wants to become a psychiatrist because “she loves kids and helping people.”
