As explained by Raven and her mom, Darlene, their family relocated from South Carolina to Bucks County when Raven was in the fifth grade.
Her initial adjustment to this new environment was both extremely difficult and emotionally challenging for her.
However, over the ensuing four years Raven has blossomed, becoming engaged in a variety of extra-curricular activities both at school and in her community, and achieving a straight “A” scholastic record.
Her mom described Raven as a very happy young woman who is popular with her classmates, and strives to be helpful to everyone with whom she comes in contact.
