Have You Ever...
...felt like the place where you were living was just a place to stay and not "home"?
...wondered what life would be like
if you were never placed in foster care or for adoption?
An adoptee born in Manhattan, NY., and in her words, "raised all over the place", Jessenia has a powerful testimony of how she overcame being an abandoned baby, abused child, incarcerated youth and high school drop-out.
Then with the close mentorship of caring coaches and teachers, she graduated from high school and was awarded a $160,000 scholarship to attend and graduate from Lynn University.
Jessenia is now committed to her work as a Foster and Adoption Advocate, Motivational Speaker, Author, and Founder of "Which Way Is Home", with a special compassion for African-American and Hispanic youth placed in trans-racial families.
Her passion for speaking to and in behalf of foster youth and adoptees, and transparency about her life has helped hundreds of youth transform their lives by learning how to overcome personal struggles, dream big, build confidence and find their purpose.
