Angiie, 20, is a single mother raising her 2-year-old daughter in Bronx, NY. Angiie grew up in the foster care system and faced unimaginable challenges and trauma throughout her childhood. Giving birth to her daughter while still in high school, Angiie was determined to finish her degree and move forward to college, something most foster care children don’t accomplish. Now on her way to completing college, Angiie is optimistic and is motivated to be the best possible mother to her daughter.
Angiie was so thankful to have been chosen by the HBO Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Affairs team to receive a corporate grant from HBO. She has received help with food and clothing expenses, as well as other needs for her apartment and college. Angiie is a strong, motivated young woman who is now on track for an incredible future.
