“I hope for the smallest of my six children to grow up and say ‘I was so small, and look at me now,’” said Ajibola. “I want my kids [to] come back to VCU to study and learn to care for others with the same people who cared for me and my family.”

A truly heart-warming story. We wish them all the best!
