My Story

Melissa and her children Eliana and Axel have been a part of the CDL family since July of 2018. When we interviewed Melissa to accept her children into CDL’s children’s center, she shared with us that her greatest dream and goal for her life was to go back to university and to study Accounting. Then, in August 2019, thanks to the scholarship that she began to receive in CDL’s Scholarship Program, Melissa was able to realize her dream as she enrolled in a Bachelor of Accounting program at a local university. Melissa is a very dedicated Mother, who works full-time in addition to studying full-time in the evenings and on the weekends. She has maintained a 90% average in her classes at the university, and is on-track to graduate in August of 2021. It has given us great joy to see all that Melissa has accomplished as part of the CDL family, and the way that she is working so hard to give her family a better future. From Melissa: Honestly, I want you to know that I am so thankful to God and to each one who is helping me to realize this dream of mine. Without the help, I don’t believe I would be able to do this on my own. I will work my hardest to not let you down, even though some times it is very difficult. But then I look around to people that are supporting me, and I don’t want to let anyone down. Thank you so much for everything. May God bless you, and multiply in your life the generosity that you have shown me. Thank you so much.
