The transition from high school to the world beyond is a journey filled with challenges for every young adult. Here at Dorie’s Promise, we’re committed to standing by our teenagers, offering the support they need to step confidently into this new phase of life. And one remarkable young soul embarking on this adventure is Ana.
What’s Next for Ana?
Ana’s story with us spans many years, and seeing her blossom into the incredible young woman she is today has been a heartwarming delight. It feels like just yesterday when she was a carefree little girl, running and playing with her friends—time truly does fly. Recently, we proudly celebrated her graduation, a monumental moment not just for Ana, but for the entire Dorie’s Promise family. And naturally, the big question on everyone’s mind is, “What’s next for Ana?”
Ana is someone who pours her heart and soul into projects that ignite her passion. Through her final years of school, she held onto a profound dream—to make a difference in the lives of children who, like her, have faced tough circumstances.
Her future holds a beautiful mission, and we’re wholeheartedly committed to supporting her. Our goal is to assist Ana in pursuing her university education, tailored to her dreams. Currently considering International Relations at a local university, the program’s in-person classes perfectly align with Ana’s fascination for exploring the application of laws across diverse global landscapes. This path harmonizes beautifully with Ana’s natural skills and inherent qualities.
Remaining Connected to Dorie’s Promise
While certain aspects of Ana’s future plans are still taking shape—like the possibility of balancing part-time work with her studies—her immediate path is clear: a step into the world of adulthood while finding her place in the wider world. Throughout this transition, our unwavering support will be her guiding light. Ana not only holds promise for the future but also enriches our present, especially through her care for the younger children at our home. Her dedication to assisting the Special Moms, particularly when errands call them away, exemplifies her taking on adult responsibilities—an experience we hope will shape her future positively.
We’re absolutely thrilled to be part of Ana’s journey towards her dreams. Recognizing the challenges that come with this life stage, we stand firm in our belief that everyone within our circle is family. Ana’s growth and her dream of being a compassionate force for the most vulnerable is our guiding light. Achieving this, however, is a step-by-step adventure.
Each child’s journey with us is unique, reflecting their individual interests and needs. It’s this diversity that makes each story so incredibly special. As Ana continues to flourish, we hope she carries the spirit of Dorie’s Promise with her, nurturing her growth as she steps into her future.
