Nyla’s Story: From Foster to Freshman

Aug 24, 2022 | Blog, LifeSet, Media Coverage

Moving to a college can be an exciting yet anxious experience for many young people. For those aging out of foster care, applying to and even getting enrolled in a college can be a monumental task. That’s where LifeSet comes in.

LifeSet helped Nyla, a Mississippi Gulf Coast foster youth, in several ways from assisting her with time and financial management to getting a job to applying for college. Nyla and her foster parents shared her story with WDAM-TV in Hattiesburg during her college move-in day in mid-August.
