KYEI BOATENG / I HAD TO BE AN ADVOCATE FOR MYSELF
"Write and create your narrative."
Kyei shares #HisStory:
"What I needed the most when I was emancipating from the foster care system was financial support and counseling.
But the moment I was removed from my home I learned that I had to be an advocate for myself. That moment I will never forget gave me the energy to stand up and stay persistent.
One piece of advice- Write! Write down your feelings, your experiences, your dreams and when you get this together let that be your guide. Use it for college applications, send letters to your state, share with community leaders!"
