Before a packed house at the Villa's 2018 Portraits of Hope Gala, CEO Christina Gullo had the pleasure of presenting a scholarship, courtesy of the MCC Foundation, to Alexia Marathe.

Lexi's speech was an intimate look at her struggles, and ultimately, her triumph over bullying, drug addiction and despair; with help from Villa of Hope.
