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 from my perspective is that a child that has been removed from their situation is not their situation. Before you judge a child and put them somewhere based on the situation they came from give them a chance to be normal. This is especially true for teenagers.
What was the key takeaway from your experience of Foster Youth Shadow Day last year?
My key takeaway from my experience of Foster Youth Shadow Day last year is that I'm not alone. My brothers and sisters in the system have dreams that they follow just like me!
