Erica Townson spent 7 years in Colorado's foster care system. Erica was separated from my younger siblings at a young age, but was blessed with the opportunity to reunite with them. Currently she is attending the Community College of Denver to pursue her dreams of becoming an influential actress. A love for the culinary arts drives her dream to one day open a bed and breakfast called "Pillows and Pancakes." Being involved in the foster care community through her local Youth Leadership Team, and now as an All-Star, has developed her from a frustrated youth to a knowledgeable advocate for other youth in the system. Erica hopes to become a foster mother some day.
