Angelica Cross-Cain spent 8 years in the Maine foster care system

Angelica (Angel) is in her second year of college at Southern Maine Community College after graduating high school on the honor roll and entering foster care at the age of 12. She is a sociology major with a concentration in Crime, Law and Justice. Recently, Angel donated her artistic abilities to make ornaments for a tree representing youth in foster care which helped to raise money for care packages and emergency funds for former foster youth now attending college or living on their own. Her goal is to one day work in either juvenile justice or as a criminal profiler with the FBI. An active member of Youth Leadership Advisory Team (YLAT) and a mentor to young youth, Angel is kind, open, non judgmental, and a proud "mom" to her dog and cats.
