About Us

Our Founder of A Garden of Hope.


Hello and Welcome! 

  • I'm LaShaunta Waller the founder of a Garden of Hope Scholarship.  I'm a Wife, and mother of two; Asia & James . I'm an Author of various children's books; co-owner of Wall2Wall Designs. I'm also a Vet of the US Air Force. I created this garden in hopes that I could help many people bloom and develop into something Nutritional to society regardless of their economic status or race.Our Garden of Hope (Helping Other People to Excel) promotes furthering education and I   encouraged this viewpoint and contended that children required special preparation for adulthood, as well as opportunities for recreation.  Adolescence is the pivotal period between childhood and adulthood. It is the time when youth need to acquire the attitudes, competencies, values, and social skills that will carry them forward to successful adulthood. It is also the time when they need to avoid choices and behaviors that will limit their future potential. Here in our Garden we play a crucial role in helping young people navigate this phase.

Our May 4, 2019 Cinderella Kaylin Nguyen

Hello, my name is Kaylin Nguyen. My parents are Mike Nguyen and Holly Le. I have 2 brothers and I attend Everett High School. My escort for this evening will be Curtis Couthen. My favorite color is light blue and My favorite book is Jane Eyreby Charlotte Bronte.  My biggest role model are my parents and they’re my role model because they came to America with nothing and had to put things aside because they had me. My parents work so much to make sure my siblings and I have everything we need and so thatwe can get the best education there is so that we cana good job in the future. I just want to be able to make my parents proud so in the end I’ll be able to take care of them so that they don’t have to work anymore.  My future aspirations are to love life no matter what obstacle I encounter. Times maybe be hard for all of us but it could always be worst. I want to be able to make a good impact on others’ lives and be as helpful as I can. I also want to beopen minded of the possibilist out there and learn something new every day.   My current goals are to learn how to take things easier and not be too hard on myself. This a goal of mine that I have been working on a long time and it’s getting better but I always find myself worrying about something and tend to overthink.Everything is a process and I just need to trust myself. Learning to love myself and feel comfortable in my own skin.   What I’ve gained the most from this program are a group of amazing people. They’re very supportive and motivate me to be the best person I can be. We had classes about personal finance, information on college, careers, they thought us life lessonsand skills such as how you enter a room and make yourself member ale. They exemplified what good role models looks like and too give back to our community. No words can explain how much gratitude I have towards every individual. Their encouragement meant somuch to me and I knew I couldn’t give up, but only to push myself harder because there was no other option. I’ve never been more inspired in my life to do better. They’ve made a tremendous impact on me.   What I will carry with me after this program is really to have confidence in myself because it goes a long way. I have to advocate for myself and do more for myself then someone is willing to go for me.
