For the past three years, Brenda has played a vital role in Christon's life. Now, she's more than a mentor and teacher…Christon calls her "godmother."

"She was definitely an angel sent down from God," Christon says. "Because of her, I feel like anything is possible."

Christon says she doesn't think she'd be alive today if it wasn't for her teacher, while Brenda credits Christon with changing her life. "I [didn't] have a daughter until now," Brenda says.

With Brenda by her side, Christon is looking forward to a bright future. "Thanks to her, now I know I'm going to do great things in my life," she says.
