“Working with kids in foster care gives me the sense of responsibility to show children that they shouldn’t be ashamed. I know sometimes when you go into that situation, you’re embarrassed, and you’re out with your parents and they ask questions. It’s your childhood story and it makes you who you are today,” — said.
