Kendra said it was her daughter’s dream to be a doctor since she was 5 years old. She mentioned that Kristine studied hard without missing a day in school from kindergarten to 12th grade.

She added that her daughter’s efforts throughout the years deserve an all-out celebration which was why she rented a billboard. To work out the surprise, she told Kristine that they would have an outdoor celebration at a parking lot with some family and friends.

She mentioned that it was at the parking lots where Kristine saw a giant billboard featuring her picture and her accomplishments. Kendra stated that she also wanted the billboard to serve as an inspirational message to everyone passing by it.


“We once heard that nothing good comes out of the city of Camden, and we just wanted to let them know this is something good that comes out of the city of Camden,” Kendra said.

”The kids there don’t really know what’s outside of Camden. Seeing somebody on a billboard becoming a doctor, it is possible,” Kristine added. Kristine said her goal in life is to come back to her hometown, Camden to give back to the society
