My Story

Sade entered the foster care system at age 13. Despite the difficulties this life presented, she worked hard in school and rose during her teen years to be a leading voice for reforms in the foster care system to better enable youth in the system to prepare for college, and for adulthood success. Sade, a resident of Oakland, has helped shape public policy by leading research teams to assess group home conditions and offer policy recommendations. She also has been a mentor and inspiration to other foster youth. Sade is a student at Sojourner Truth Academy in Oakland and plans to attend Clark Atlanta University in the fall.
