Raised by her grandmother Angella Russell, secondary student of Alphansus Davis High School in Clarendon, Akaylia Green is an aspirant nurse. Her grandmother who is sickly, is a vendor who struggles to make ends meet daily due to financial constraints.
Akaylia who is no stranger to adversity, and was shun by not one, but both parents, is not allowing a dark chapter to write her story in full. Despite the burden accompanying finding lunch money and transportation fare for school daily, the 14-year-old Manchester resident remains motivated and steadfast to accomplish her dreams.
To reignite her Christmas spirit, Akaylia wishes to receive food, clothes, and shoes as her Christmas gifts.
