Between her four children and her job as a bus operator in the city, Donshay’s days are always full of excitement and activity. When she’s not at work and has a moment to herself, she loves to get lost in a good book. But for Donshay, friends and family always come first.


Donshay’s four kids are the light of her life, and she can’t wait to give them all a space of their own in their new home. Marquis, Messiah, Mariyah, and Marissa will have a place to dance, read, sing, and play together as a family for years to come. 


Donshay grew up on the West Side of Chicago. Though she is a little nervous about leaving the West Side, she is confident in this new opportunity for her family. There will be a big backyard for all four kids to play together, and they will be able to show off their own style and personalities in their bedrooms. Donshay envisions a space for books and school work- to put their projects on display and create a healthy learning environment. This house will be somewhere they can create memories together, as well as something she can pass down to them one day. 


“I know owning a home will bring on a lot of new responsibilities. I am working now towards building future goals for myself and my children. But through all the hard work, it will be worth it- we will own a home that we helped build from the ground up. We can build generational wealth. And, most of all, it will be OURS.”
