Hi everyone, I’m Tiffany Cannon and I live in Atlanta, GA. I’m currently working with an apprenticeship program as a security analyst for Elevance-Health (formerly known as Anthem Inc) and attending school at Atlanta Tech College-majoring in cybersecurity and database. My goal is to become a security analyst senior within one of our cybersecurity departments since this has been my dream career and passion as a young child.
I joined the CARES project because I deeply care about how the child welfare system treats older youth who are leaving foster care or signing themselves out and they need to be more supportive of older youths. If older youths had the support and a helping hand to navigate, then many things wouldn’t be as difficult as they are now, and becoming an adult and having their own would be less stressful.
When I’m not at school or working during the week, you can find me doing volunteer work for the elderly, spending time with my nieces and nephews, or traveling.
