"The system taught me that I was stronger than what I knew, and
wiser than what I felt." "My worst experience in foster care happened one month before I emancipated out of the foster care system. I had been accepted to over seven Universities and was being provided an all expense paid trip to my top school Clark Atlanta University, in Georgia. The excitement was driven by my acceptance to the University, the tour of the school and going to a new place. I grew up my entire life in Los Angeles, the furthest areas of LA I had reached was Inglewood, South Central and Compton.

please speak up. The possibilities are endless when you do! You're not alone, I am here with you. I stand with and for you, always."
"It seems kind of weird to say, to think about even, but I believe my worst experience in the foster care system was having social workers, courts, etc. not recognize how troubled I was. I'd always been a real academic kid who loved school and excelled.

I struggled having been separated from not only my parents, but my siblings as well.
