Kristel Battle spent 3 years in the Connecticut foster care system and was adopted by her foster mom. Kristel is associated with an organization called Kids Helping Kids, where youth in the programs help kids in the community. Kristel would like to attend the University of Connecticut and major in Early Childhood Development.  Also in her future, Kristel wants to give back to the foster care system by making an app for foster youth that would give foster kids tips and suggestions to help them make it through foster care so that they are successful when they transition out of the foster care system.
