Brittany's Blog: Straight Talk by a Scholar from Foster Care

Not Giving Up

On April 27th, I will be graduating college with my Bachelor's of Social Work degree. I will be walking across the stage at Eastern Michigan University clothed in a flowing gown and matching cap, shaking the Dean's hand and trying not to trip. In that moment, I will become one of the 3% of students who obtain an undergraduate degree after leaving foster care (Casey Family Programs, 2011).
