Hello everyone! My name is Gwendolyn Golding and I live in upstate New York. I am currently working as a call center customer service representative for Spectrum. I also attend the University at Albany where I major in English and double minor in business and education. My goal is to travel and teach around the world before settling down to open my business.
I joined the CARES project because I believe that the foster care system is broken and I want to be a part of the group that enforces change. The system loses focus on an individual as they get closer to aging out of care. The CARES project is important for older youth transitioning out of foster care because it helps to set them up for the real world. We are working on taking away so many of the challenges that come with receiving help as an older youth that would help them flow easier into adulting. When I am not at school or working, you can find me in the gym or binge watching the greatest shows.
