Description

After we shared our story in written form in May 2017, we wanted to expand our audience by turning it into a podcast. We decided to split our story into three separate episodes: Entering the System, Dealing with the System, and Surviving the System. At the end of each episode we have our roundtable discussions, where we [the Junket Crew] compare our own experiences in the foster care system with what the character in our story goes through. Through our podcast, we hope to shine more light on the realities of being in foster care and how those listening can participate in the system as a supporting role for those in care.

For our first adventure of 2019, we met on a Saturday to build flower crowns with floral designer India LoFaso in her Brooklyn studio, and then photographer Kreg Holt set up a photo shoot for us to model our creations. In this episode you will get to share our experience as we head behind the scenes in the studio as we made and modeled flower crowns. After, India joined us for a Q&A as we talked through her experiences of starting her own business. We learned a lot from India on flowers, creating art, and bringing it full circle to starting a business from scratch doing something you love. Thanks to both for making our first adventure a success and giving us the chance to feel accomplished. If you know someone who wants to have a marvelous year, please pass this along!
