Years in care: 7
Ashyna Davis is 20 years old and spent 7 years in Washington state’s foster care system. Her childhood was filled with obstacles and hardships. Overcoming those experiences have contributed to the strong, independent, resilient young adult she is today. She has a passion for helping people in any way she can, which led her to her field of study. She attends Seattle University and will graduate with a Bachelor’s in Social Work in June 2016. Ashyna enjoys listening to music, dancing, cooking, and writing. She believes that we are here to learn is what we are here to teach. Healing from her past was one of her most challenging lessons and she wants to help others heal and reach their very own self-actualization. Her goal is to own a private practice with a focus in spiritual healing.
