Have you ever thought…

I realized my life was about struggling through challenges that I had no control over…. With time, I’ve grown to realize that I am able to change my life with my education.

As a former foster youth we feel like we can’t make it. We read pamphlets about getting the job, but it’s a different thing when you’re facing that interview. Mentors helped me to develop my confidence with mock interviews.

I wish someone had told me people would expect more from me when I transitioned out of foster care.
