Courtney Sausville spent 4 years in Vermont's foster care system.

She is now enrolled at College of Saint Josephs studying general studies with hopes to earn her 2 year degree. She then would like to pursue her dream of meeting people of all backgrounds as a Flight Attendant. Although she has hopes to come back to school, her current short-term plan is to write books to inspire and help others understand individuals at different levels.

Courtney has been a part of a foster family recruitment video for Vermont and worked with a news station to promote foster care in the state. She is also currently working as an assistant to a program for youth who transitioned from foster care to college to give them support and guidance. Courtney also works as a mentor for the DREAM program and engages in weekly community service.
