Amtrak Travel Certificate for Elissia who longs to see her sister

Posted May 26, 2018
As with many foster youth, Elisia, has struggled to obtain a driver's license and certainly cannot afford a car. Thus, she relies on train passes to carry her back to her 11-year-old sister who remains in foster care about 5 hours from where Elisia attends school.

Elisia is 22 years old and lives in Riverside, CA

Elisia is an emancipated foster youth with a huge heart and a passion for giving back to her community. She is attending a 4-year university where she majors in chemistry and hopes to become a science or math teacher. She is a wonderful member of our community and a great role model for her 11-year-old sister who remains in foster care. Elisia is one of those people who is reluctant to wish for things because she feels others are more deserving than herself. In addition to a college education, we hope she leaves college with a sense of confidence that she deserves all the love and support the world has to offer her!
