What is the one thing you wish people knew about the foster care system from your perspective?
The one thing I wish people knew about the foster care system is that the system is not ALL bad as people have tried to paint it out to be. In spite of all the hurt and pain the system saved my life.
What was the key takeaway from your experience of Foster Youth Shadow Day last year?
The key takeaway from my Foster Youth Shadow Day experience was to get my Congress member aware of the issue of foster care. I was able to get Congressman Hudson to host a Foster Youth Day back in our district. He is committed to learning more about the system and to working on policies on the federal level to help improve the system.
