A LovedBy Box filled with goodies for Angelique

Posted Mar 20, 2019
LovedBy Boxes are a beautiful way to spread some love to One Simple Wish Advisory Council members who have spent time in foster care. These awesome humans provide feedback on our programs, advise us on policy matters and share new ideas on how we can help the next generation of young people who are currently in foster care. To say thanks and "we love you", we will be sending them seasonal gift boxes filled with all kinds of goodies from our amazing supporters. This wish covers the cost of the box, shipping and a few fun fillers! If you want to know more about how to collect or donate items to these boxes, email danielle@onesimplewish.org anytime!

Angelique is 27 years old and lives in Greenbelt, MD

Angelique entered the foster care system at the age of 5. During a period of instability she was placed with her biological aunt and uncle. While she was in high school she lost both of her parents and impacted her significantly. Angelique fought through this tough time and graduated from college and went to community college. Soon thereafter, she transferred to a university and obtained her degree in psychology. During her time as an undergraduate student she began to take part in advocacy initiatives to encourage resources for foster youth to have access to education resources. Through this pursuit she was selected to be an intern on Capitol Hill in 2015. After her internship she became a staff assistant for Senator Debbie Stabenow as well as a consultant for the Capacity Building Center for States. After a year and a half she became a legislative correspondent for Senator Sherrod Brown. Angelique is passionate about how policy impacts the children and families who interface with the system and is determined to highlight and bring awareness to these issues. She has not allowed her experiences to define her but used them to encourage systemic change.
