Justyce Elizabeth Callisto
24 Years Old
Vermont Foster Care System
Justyce Elizabeth Callisto is currently working on getting her bachelor’s degree in psychology with a concentration in mental health counseling from SNHU. Once they have gotten her bachelor’s degree, Justyce plans on getting their master’s degree in psychology, child and adolescent development.
Some of her hobbies include baseball, music in all aspects, juggling, photography, and volunteering. Justyce is a former foster child, and spent roughly eight or nine years in that system. She signed out after they turned 18 and graduated high school.
Justyce was 2 years old when they entered the system her first time, and was 12 the second time she entered the system. The total number of moves they had was roughly 23, that included foster homes, respite homes, residentials, group homes and even inpatient facilities. Justyce has three siblings who entered care with her, but they did not stay together. Justyce does not have much of a relationship with any of them.
One awesome fact about Justyce is they taught herself how to juggle while in an in-patient treatment center at 13 years old.
Their overall career goals are to use her skills and experience in the system to help foster youth who are at-risk understand that there are different ways to cope. She wants to show that there are different ways to communicate so they do not have to rewire their brain and try to become adults at the same time.
