During Alexis Obinna’s time in California’s foster care system, volunteering at church was fun and better than staying at home. During college, Alexis was able to grow and learn more about groups and organizations that available to youth in foster care. Each year, Alexis helps run an annual event called “Independent City” where younger youth learn how to handle real-life situations. Alexis would like to keep learning and going to school in pursuit of a degree that will lead to helping foster children. Alexis’s main goal one day is to start a non-profit organization that helps with housing in Los Angeles County.
