Did you always want to go to college?
Yes. I always felt like I had to, it was the next step to better my future.

What is the biggest way Guardian Scholars helped you?
Networking. You get to know people, and build a separate little family on campus with individuals who come from different cultures and experiences, yet we are able to relate through a similar struggle.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully I will be in law school; I will start looking into that more this year.

If you could give a message to all current foster youth, what would you say?
Keep pushing. Things may get hard, but nothing is impossible.
