In May of 2010 Aryelle was put into foster care with one (of three) of her older sisters and both of her two little brothers. She went through five different placements over four years including emergency receiving homes, kinship, and APPLA. After 4 years in care, she aged out at the age of 19 after living independently for a year and is in full contact with both her foster and biological family. Aryelle has studied Psychology and Education at both Oregon State University and Central Oregon Community College. When she isn’t working, Aryelle enjoys spending her time adventuring to local and foreign places. She best enjoys hiking and camping in her home state, Oregon. In her free time she likes to draw, paint, play guitar, and cook for her friends and family. Her future plans and goals include teaching Psychology at a local high school, owning a cattle farm and raising her kids as well as providing a safe home for foster youth to live.
