Erendira’s All-In (and going to get her Master’s degree!)

Since graduating from college, Erendira (we call her Edi ^.^ ) has served in numerous roles at CORRAL including Equine Manager and Latin Community Liaison, and now she’s off to the next chapter in her story. 

This spring she will begin a Master of International Studies program at NC State. Through this program, she hopes to continue to advocate for the underrepresented, serving as a voice for those who are frequently overlooked.

We couldn’t be more proud of all that Edi has accomplished and excited that she will continue the legacy of our work as an advocate. This is a generational impact! 

“Growing up in Mexico, my earliest years were marked with domestic violence and threats of kidnapping. As our domestic situation became increasingly dire, my mother relocated us to the US, away from my biological father. 

I struggled to adjust to a new life and language. I joined the CORRAL Riding Academy in 6th grade and couldn’t be more grateful. Despite my struggles, I eventually became fluent in English and Spanish and excelled academically. Through this journey, God ignited my passion and skills of advocacy, justice, and service. It is with great pride that I am now the first in my family to attend college and post-college education.

I focus on giving back to the communities God had placed me in, like CORRAL.

Inspired by the stories of resilience, grit, and overcoming unimaginable odds?

Help CORRAL raise the next generation of advocates by donating during the most critical fundraising effort of our entire year. Your contribution will go to rescuing 5 more horses at our New Raleigh Farm so we can accept 130 more girls into our program during 2024. More horses mean more success stories, like Edi’s.

Double the impact. 
All recurring donations will be MATCHED dollar-for-dollar.

Thank You for being ALL IN with us,
