wendyslookbook In addition to being a fashion blogger, I’m also a juvenile justice advocate. In the last ten years, I’ve volunteered and worked directly with youths and individuals from the foster care system. I was a counselor at the Berkeley Free Clinic providing mental health services to the homeless community, a teacher inside the San Francisco Juvenile Detention Center, and am now a mentor with InsideOut Writers, an LA based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping incarcerated youths. One of the connecting threads underlining all of these organizations is their support of foster care youths. In 2014, conservative studies find that 20% will become homeless after 18; 71% of women will be pregnant by 21; and 25% have experienced post-traumatic stress disorder which is twice the rate of US war veterans. I’m incredibly grateful to have the blog to share my love for fashion. Moreover, I’m forever thankful for opportunities like these to have passionate conversations. For your consideration, please kindly read today’s blog post (link in profile). It’s a story of strength, resilience, and hope. It sounds like a screenplay of a movie, but unfortunately, it’s the reality that many foster youths face. 20h
