JUSTGeorgia Crew: What advice do you have for youth about sharing their experiences with the foster care system?
Sir Aaron Mason: The advice that I give for sharing your story would be to do what you feel is right. Do not put much thought into what someone my think of you; you never know who may here it or who may be touched by it.
I use to find myself reluctant to disclose certain details of my experience in fear that I may hurt someone. However, if I am able to inspire the thousands of kids out there in foster care then does it really matter what hard feelings one person may have.
In addition, always keep in mind why you are telling your story. I remind myself everyday that I am doing it to encourage all the children out there in foster care or who just need a little encouragement to not give up; you can still make something of yourself, but it takes work! Knowing why I am doing this helps me through those tough days where things may not be going as planned.
