Claudiane, who prefers to be called Angel, is a determined and responsible young woman. Since the age of 14, she had been involved with DCF and lived in a variety of foster homes. At 18, she applied for a Voluntary Placement Agreement and began her transition to living as an adult. She sees her DCF caseworker as the only family she has and she cherishes the relationship. Through the help from DCF, she has managed to live an independent adult lifestyle and is so proud to have recently become a citizen of the United States. Angel currently attends Mass Bay Community College and her goal is to become a travel nurse and a mentor as she has benefitted immensely from great mentorship. She loves to cook and help others in any way she can, spreading the love, kindness, and her knowledge.
