Tiffany's Takeaways for Foster Youth

  1. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Be strong.
  2. Write down your goals. Find what you love and do it more. Follow your passion.
  3. It’s okay to be afraid. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to ask for help. Just because someone says no doesn’t mean they hate your guts. It just means they’re not capable. Do not be afraid to ask for help.
