Meet Tiffany Christian, who despite grappling with intense trauma at a young age, has gone on to provide a healthy environment and example for her own daughter.

“I was a homeless runaway by the age of 13 and on my way towards dropping out of school. Alcohol, drugs and verbal abuse didn’t produce an environment conducive to a healthy childhood.”

Rather than perpetuating the cycle, Tiffany saw the need for a major life change, inspiring her to enroll at CCA.

“What continued to push me forward was an overwhelming thirst to see what the better side of life could look like if I kept going down the right path. I left my old lifestyle, committed to re-creating myself and began seeing positive changes.”

Tiffany aspires to complete a BA in Social Justice to one day become a sociologist.

“We have the power to change our environment – and, for me, it began with my education.”

Tiffany’s story is truly an inspiration. Keep on moving forward, Tiffany, we know you’ll do great things!

Meet Steven Edo, whose early life was marred with tragedy. But instead of defeating him, that tragedy pushed him to follow his dreams.

“War filled my early childhood, and my father was killed in a dispute between rival tribes in my home country of Rwanda.”
Steven's life has been a constant journey, both in a literal and figurative sense, all pointing him to where he is today.

“I’m currently studying Business at CCA, since my passion is to improve the lives of others by creating jobs so that they can support their families. My plan in the next five to 10 years is to own a company, adopt orphans and help widows who have nowhere to look for help.”

We know you can do it Steven, and your story can inspire us all to be great!

Meet Sarah Daniels, a committed and hardworking student, who won’t let anything get in her way.

“The idea of having a dual graduation appealed to me, even though I sometimes have a love-hate relationship with studying.”

Sarah finished much of her associate degree while in high school at Aurora West Preparatory Academy, showcasing an intense drive that is rarely seen in teenagers and young adults. Her actions have also proven that her determination isn’t selfish.

“My fellow high school students may not fully realize the possibilities that exist for them academically. I wanted to serve as an example to them and hopefully prod them to push their own limits to succeed.”

Sarah intends on going on to finish her bachelor’s in International Relations, but she hasn’t decided between Brown, the University of Pennsylvania or the University of Chicago.  Sarah will also be joining 16 of her classmates this spring in New York at the National Model UN Conference. 

Let’s wish Sarah the best on her inevitably bright future!
