Joseph Bakhit, left, and his fiance, Sam Arjoon, embrace in their one room studio in Berkeley, California, October 2, 2014. Bakhit is a former foster child and UC Berkeley student, double majoring in Peace and Conflict and Art. California’s AB12 legislation provides him with a stipend of $838 per month until age 21, in an effort to ease the transition from the foster care system into adulthood.
