To kickstart Fall 2020 in good spirits amidst these challenging times, Angels Nest Board Member, Georgette Todd is having a virtual conversation with CSUDH, Toro Guardian Scholars on September 15th!
Angels Nest has a long-standing commitment to empowering foster youth with support and services, including housing, career development and life-skills training to reach their fullest potential. Our goal is to plant the seed of positivity and inspire youth to trust in their journey navigating the virtual education space and the pandemic.
Georgette will be sharing her journey as a former transitional-age-youth herself! She spent her teenage years bouncing around from home to home in the foster care system before she emancipated at age 18. Like the youth who apply for Angels Nest services, Georgette had no safety net or anyone to depend on. Through sheer determination and a little support, Georgette went all the way with her education and graduated at the top of her class, serving as the commencement speaker at her college graduation. She is the first in her immediate family to get a college education.
Georgette is a published author, advocate for foster youth and inspirational leader!
