Ashley Williams' ambition to become a lawyer has a lot to do with her experience as a kid in foster care.
“I want to be a lawyer because when I grew up in the foster care system, I didn’t have many lawyers who could advocate for me,” Williams said. “I figure I want to help other youth.”
Williams said she moved around to 36 foster homes and 26 schools after she entered the system at 10 years old.
“Education was just what kept me going,” she said. “I loved being in school.”
