Timothy Dennis spent 6 years in Tennessee's foster care system.

Tim entered the foster system when he was 12 and has spent 6 years and 14 placements in the Tennessee system. He has been a consistent member of the Youth Leadership Board and has assisted in recruiting foster parents for older youth. He has also been elected to participate in Congressional Youth Shadow day in 2014. His educational goals include finishing school at Tennessee College of Applied Technology and transferring to an RN program for psychiatric nursing. He hopes to work with young adults who are going through hardships and may need someone to relate with.

Tim has a big heart and volunteers for animals as well, so when he is not working with youth, he can be found spending his time at the local animal center. Although Tim has been through a lot, he is positive and passionate about his own future as well as the future of other youth in the foster system.
