Anastasia is proud to have received her Bachelor’s degree from Queens College last year—and credits The Foundling’s Fostering College Success Initiative
program for helping her each step of the way. She credits the program with providing her with the skillset needed for living independently—from budgeting, to cooking, to managing her life. Living in the dorms allowed her to connect with other young people from similar backgrounds in an environment oriented toward healing and growth.”
Anastasia was inspired by her tutors’ intellect and continual support—they never judged her, kept her on track, and motivated her to major in secondary education. Because of her experience with the Fostering College Success Initiative, she is inspired to pay it forward and help others succeed academically.
