“We need to remember that children in foster care are victims in circumstances beyond their control. I want to help these children have normal happy childhoods. Speaking up for them is essential to ensure they have access to resources which will help them achieve their fullest potential. I am also passionate about helping those children who age-out of foster care. These young adults must be taught the tools that they will need to be successful members of society. We must help break the cycles and stigmas of growing up in foster care”.
