Tiffani entered the Maine Child Welfare system at age 16.

She experienced four placements in two years. After aging out, she entered extended care so she could have access to support and resources. 

Tiffani volunteers at a homeless shelter, advocates on many levels, including the Youth Leadership Advisory Team (YLAT) and the Maine Youth Transition Collaborative (MYTC). Also, she helps to plan and organize the Teen Conference for youth in care. She has spoken on a handful of panels, educating and sharing her story to prospective foster parents and caseworkers in training. She also made Dean’s List for the 2017-2018 year.

Looking forward to becoming an Art Therapist Tiffani is going all the way for her Master’s degree.
