Tonisha was in the foster care system in Wisconsin and has gone on to attend The University of Wisconsin-Stout, where she is a senior majoring in Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Social Work. Tonisha is goal-oriented and wishes to improve the lives of those in need through her work in the Foster Youth Internship (FYI) Program®. The FYI Program is a highly esteemed ten-week congressional internship for young adults who spent their formative years in the foster care system. As part of the program, Tonisha will participate in networking events with leaders in the business community and child welfare advocates who represent a wide variety of policy and non-policy related disciplines. She will also meet with legislators to discuss important issues that youth in foster care face and their shared vision for bringing about change in this area. At the conclusion of the program, Tonisha will author a policy report of recommendations on improving the federal foster care system. This report will be presented at a Congressional briefing and a briefing to the White House Domestic Policy Council, as well as disseminated across the country.
