Vlad Bonds


Hi everyone, my name is Vlad Bonds and I live in Columbus, Georgia. I am currently a full-time student at Columbus State University, as well as an athlete and part-time employee. My goal is to work in either medicine or on the athletic side. This goal is important to me because I enjoy medicine and helping people. I enjoy helping people and strengthening weak connections. Naturally, I was interested in joining the CARES project and becoming an ambassador to support the community. The CARES project is important for older youth transitioning out of foster care because from my personal experience and many other experiences in the community support is needed. When I am not at work, you can find me training for soccer and hanging out with friends.
