My name is Brana Phillips and I and from Los Angeles, CA. I am a full time student at University of California, Merced. My future goals are to become a Juvenile Probation Officer and a Children’s Therapist. My goal is important because it not just something that I’m interested in but being someone who has been impacted by the correctional system from first experience I thought could make a significant change. I joined the CARES project because as a former foster youth I feel as though it was my duty to join organizations and projects where I can share my lived experience.
