Speaking to Fox Nation in the interview aired Sunday, Melania opened up regarding her college scholarship nonprofit, funded by the sales of her NFT collection of digital artworks.

“It’s exciting working with the leaders of foster care communities and schools that are [choosing] the deserving students,” Melania explained to host Pete Hegseth.

Hegseth surprised Melania and Michael Whitesman, the first recipient of the scholarship fund when he made a video call and introduced the former First Lady to the soon-to-be college student. “Hey Melania, thank you so much for your generosity,” Whitesman announced.

The recipient, who entered the foster care system when he was only one-year's-old after authorities removed him from his household after the death of his younger sibling, told Hegseth he had given up on his dream to go to college before being awarded the scholarship.

Whitesman said he was born to a single mother in Southern California and was removed from his household after he was found by police holding a knife in his hands at just one-year's-old.

His baby sibling had died in his sleep, and authorities put Whitesman in the system.

He lived in eight different homes for the following four years before being adopted at age five. Yet despite being provided for physically, Whitesman announced his then-family lacked emotional connection.

He was returned to the system at age 15 and experienced the all too familiar burden of being taken from one foster home to the next.

Upon moving to Oklahoma when he turned 17, his life took a turn for good, Whitesman explained to Fox.

“God has been gracious to me ... there have been a plethora of people who have stepped in to mentor me and I am so grateful for the opportunities that have been given me,” he stated.

Whitesman announced at first he had declined to go to college because he was scared it would cost money he did not have, though would now make his dream come true thanks to the Fostering the Future initiative. He thanked the former First Lady for her generosity and assured her he would get nothing but straight As.

“You’re very welcome. I just wish you a great success, and I know you are starting the classes in the fall,” Melania explained to Whitesman.
