Jayne Amelia talks with former foster youth Vaughn Laws. "My name is Vaughn and I wish I knew where I was headed, but this adventure that has been life left me a husk of who I used to be. I've come through a lot and managed to keep my wits about me and pretty much out of trouble. I am currently aspiring to be a graphic designer. I had more ambition when I was a teen since I thought I wasn’t going to be doing everything on my own. However, I learned life deals out its harshest lessons with zero bias regardless of age, gender or race, and that if you want to see success then you have to be prepared to climb the toughest mountain and cross the harshest deserts on your own. I haven't finished climbing yet but I’m not throwing away my climbing gear." Vaughn interned with Media Monks in Los Angeles and is now working with the National Foster Care Institute as an advocate and activist.
