Shauntay Mayfield

Position: (she/her/hers)

I am a young black Hondorian queen who has 7 beautiful kids. I can advocate for myself and others, and I am a very passionate person when it comes to something I feel strongly about. I am a Youth Action Organizer with YouthNPower.

Why is this project important to you?
This project is important to me because I want to change the broken system that broke me. I want the kids that come after me to get everything I never had as child and mother in the system.

What do you hope to accomplish in this project?
I wish that all former foster youth get the help they need.

What have been some of your experiences in the project?
My best experience in this project is the support system that the collective gives me.
