Laticia Aossey

Laticia Aossey was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and spent approximately 10 years in Iowa’s foster care system. She defied the odds by graduating from high school early, earning her bachelor’s degree in Social Work from the University of Northern Iowa, and is now working towards her masters in Social Work. Aossey recently secured her dream job as the statewide coordinator for Iowa’s foster care youth council, known as Achieving Maximum Potential. Aossey’s future plans include advocating for foster youth on a national level, opening a transitional housing program for youth aging out of care, and becoming a foster parent one day.
