Meet NYFC Guardian Scholar Vanessa Louis

“Attaining a college degree would give me a jump start to chase after my dreams,” writes Vanessa, 20-year-old freshman at Kingsborough Community College, on her Guardian Scholars application.

Vanessa is currently pursuing her Associate’s Degree in Business Administration and plans to continue her education and obtain a Bachelor’s degree. She aspires to become an entrepreneur and to start her own business one day.

Thanks to the support of our donors, NYFC has been able to expand the Guardian Scholars Program to more youth in foster care, like Vanessa.
