26th place

Group Twenty-one

Alicia Yablonsky

I am 19 years old. My average day is me going to school then going to work right after. I live my life to try to make my moms better.

Why would you like to win?

I want my mom to be able to have a fresh start. She’s battling mental health disorders everyday of her life. She has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. She was the best mom I could ask for. She’ll be 38 years old this year. She’s an ex RN as well.

What would you do with the money if you win?

Give my mom a second chance by paying first and lasts months rent for her. Also furnishing an apartment for her and stocking her up with groceries. My mom has currently been living in a homeless shelter for almost a month now.
