4 years in Missouri’s foster care system.
TeAsia initially entered Missouri’s foster care system at age 17. She was removed out of her home and this resulted in homelessness. She continued to get good grades and kept up with three after schools jobs. After three unsuccessful foster placements that is when she found a place called home with her “Maw by choice,” her former teacher. Currently TeAsia is a student at Missouri State University Springfield studying public relations with emphasis in leadership. She hopes to one day open a center for girls, which will help girls find their voice and speak out about things that are happening to them. TeAsia is poetic, loves butterflies, is ambitious... and a foster kid.
