This is Lucia.

In 2011, Lucia joined our Kids at Heart program. Kids at Heart (KAH) provides one-to-one tutoring for low-income students. Today, Lucia is pursuing her Master's degree in Forensic Psychology and planning to pursue a career in the criminal justice system (how awesome!). 

"Kids at Heart tutoring was life-changing and contributed to my love of learning. My tutor, Carol, was like the grandmother I never had. I’m forever grateful for her kindness, encouragement, and the great memories.  I can definitely say Kids at Heart helped get me here. Thank you UPLIFT and Kids at Heart!"

- Lucia, 2020
