The purpose of this project was to explore in narrative format my life's experiences in Mexico and growing up in a low income community in Los Angeles, California. In the narrative, I disclose how I was able to break the cycle of poverty through education and overcome adversity. I reflect on the importance of receiving support and guidance to navigate the educational process. Furthermore, I share my experiences and observations working with foster youth and their struggles to attain an education. The literature reviews issues faced by foster youth and children of color such as poverty, lack of education and social injustice.
