Ajhanti is a mature, articulate college student who has struggled financially and emotionally since aging out of foster care in July of last year. She worries constantly about her four younger siblings who remain in foster care. She had a large hand in raising them and was in many ways the only true “mother figure”, especially for the two youngest. Despite a part-time job and limited financial support from the state Ajhanti struggles to make ends meet. She works hard, asks very little from anyone and is very grateful for anything she receives.
