#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

Tonja Edwards, Springfiled, MA

A full-time student at Manchester Community College, she is a single mother of three majoring in criminal justice. She aspires to attend law school and eventually provide counsel for youth offenders. She already volunteers her time to several organizations dealing with troubled children by participating in home visits, group facilitation, home interventions and acting as a court liaison.

Edwards believes in the power of a positive role model. “For Christmas, my children and I collected, purchased, wrapped and distributed toys to needy children whom attend inner city schools. I will never forget the look of great appreciation in the eyes of so many children,” she said.
