Congratulations Beria Heyman

Beria graduated from Rainier Beach High School and is on her way to college. She is hoping to go to Howard and says she aim’s to achieve everything she deserves.

She expressed feeling blessed to have so many people to help along the way. From the times she felt less motivated in school and times when her health took its tolls on her leading to days she felt like giving up. She pushed on to earn her high school diploma and several acceptance letters to colleges around the country.

In Beria’s words: “I only have up to go. Thank you to everyone in the Sickle Cell Community for mentoring and guiding me on my journey. I love you all so much! You’re all family to me.”
