Tobias spent 11 years in Michigan's foster care system.
Tobias is currently a 3rd year at Western Michigan University, persuing a degree in Film & Media. Being abandoned a young age, Tobias was faced with homelessness and separation from his entire biological family. After spending a year homeless, he entered foster care and eventually aged out at when he turned 18 years old. Now, as a third year college student, Tobias credits the resources and supports he has been given over the years with his success.
After receiving his undergraduate degree, Tobias would like to further his education by receiving both a masters degree in Film & Media, and also a degree in advocacy. He would like to utilize this background in order to advocate for young people in the system via media and technology.
