KVUE - AUSTIN - Lawmakers are gearing up for the 2017 legislative session knowing the Texas Foster Care system will be a big topic, but one former foster care kid is already working towards a solution.
"After you age out of care, there are still a lot of things that you do need help with, there are things to this day that I still call some of the staff I'm close with and say 'Hey what I do I do when this situation happens?'" said Carroll.
Carroll is now a junior at Texas Tech, majoring in social work. She said staff at the Austin Children's Shelter encouraged her to join organizations in college, helping her branch out.
