Isaiah was in foster care from 2014 until 2015, until he returned home to live with his mother. Unfortunately, the apartment they were living in was condemned. Due to being homeless, Isaiah had to reopen his case with the Division in 2017. Even through out all the hardships Isaiah has had to face he still maintains straight A’s and is preparing to attend college next year to study Early Childhood Education. He wants to either be a math teacher or special education teacher when he graduates. Isaiah works with younger children as an after-school counselor.
