Help a Young Girl Get on Her Feet
Monday, April 20, 2009
Suzy's galpal Julie is helping a young girl named Daria move into her own place -- away from the unsettled and recently violent home life that has dominated her adolescent years.
"I have known Daria for 5 years. She has worked for me and we have become close friends. She is a young, beautiful, 19-year-old, African-American girl. She has had an extremely rough road in her short 19 years but still manages to be happy, upbeat, enthusiastic, and highly motivated to reach her goals in life. This girl is in desperate need of a break for once in her life. She takes 2, 1 credit classes at the Fashion Institute in New York City while working full time. She is an amazing artist, LOVES fashion and just desperately wants to go to school. She has worked since she was 14 years old. She has pretty much been on her own since then. She has taken trains, then a bus, then walks to get to school since she was 14! She is extremely, wise, and street smart for her young 19 years!! Every time she gets on the right track, something horrible happens and it sets her back."
