This past week, Foster Care Advocate Devitta Jones and Newport News Department of Human Services presented a special event AGING OUT: WHO'S GOT THEIR BACK? event to the community. They screened my short film, AGED OUT followed by a panel discussion.

There are so many people who do not think about what happens to youth after they age out. It was an such an important event to inform the community about this inhumane issue in society.

As we celebrate National Foster Care Month, Anthony Barrows​ shared his story on "Tea Talks with Tomeka." Although spending his teen years in foster care, Anthony had sometimes hard but amazing journey. He's graduated from 3 universities including Harvard University. He calls himself a "Lucky Dude." Listen to this interview learn what makes him so lucky.

It was important to Anthony to share his story so that youth in foster care can see someone that has gone through it and see someone come out on the other side. He entered foster care at the age of 14 years old which is rare because most teenagers don't get into foster homes. They end up in group homes until they age out. Additionally, he ended up staying in one home until he aged out. He was blessed with a wonderful foster mother and social worker that encouraged him to go college after high school.

Being a graffiti artists, Anthony had gotten arrested several times although he felt that graffiti saved his life. He shares how during our conversation.

After going to college, he dedicated 10 years to working with in child ware fair work to advocate for other foster kids. Anthony and his wife later chose to adopt their son.

We had a fun yet informative conversation. You can listen on one of the links below. Please subscribe and listen.
