LEMIYA HAS HAD A TOUGH CHILDHOOD. HER FATHER FOUND GUILTY OF BEATING HER AT 4 Y.O. THEN SHE LOST EVERYTHING, EVEN HER PUPPY AND CAT IN FIRST GRADE WHEN HER HOUSE BURNED DOWN. When she was 10 there was another fire (arson) and all of our friends and family were too afraid to take us in so we would up in a battered womens shelter. Lemiya's great escape from dwelling on her horrible circumstances was to throw herself into her school work. She wants to help other kids who've gone through trauma.
SHE STAYED FOCUSED ON SCHOOL AND DECIDED SHE WANTS TO GET A PHD IN CHILD PSYCHOLOGY. HER GRADES ARE PERFECT, she's number one ranked in her high school, SO WE ARE HOPING FOR SOME SCHOLARSHIPS, BUT SHE WILL NEED A CAR TO GET BACK AND FORTH TO SCHOOL. NOTHING FANCY.
SHE really DESERVES IT, SHE TEACHES AN AUTISTIC GYM CLASS AND HELPS TAKE CARE OF HER AUTISTIC SISTER, SHE TEACHES GYMNASTICS AND WORKS 2 JOBS ON THE WEEKEND WHICH WILL COVER HER GAS AND INSURANCE. SHE FEEDS THE HOMELESS AND EVEN GAVE HER FAVORITE PILLOW AND BLANKET TO A HOMELESS GUY SLEEPING ON THE GROUND IN THE WINTER.
IF ANYONE DESERVES A BREAK IN LIfE IT'S HER, SO PLEASE DONATE WHATEVER YOU CAN AND PLEASE SHARE THIS POST
