What is the one thing you wish people knew about the foster care system from your perspective?
One thing I wish people knew about the foster care system is that there are champions fighting each and every day to ensure that current and former foster youth and their families can receive the support they need and deserve.
What was the key takeaway from your experience of Foster Youth Shadow Day last year?
The key takeaway from my experience of Foster Youth Shadow Day was the power of our voices to legislators. It was empowering to see how crucial our testimonials were to helping move others to action. I left even more dedicated to speaking out, advocating, and acting not only for foster youth, but on behalf of all those that may not speak for themselves.
