As many of you know from my previous blog, I am young person who left care just over a year ago. Some people think that when you're in care you don't get many opportunities travel, go on holiday or experience different cultures. Happily, I was one of three young people who had the chance to take part in a work placement in Berlin where i learnt about their culture and how they live day to day.
My name is Laura, I am 17 years old and have been in care for the past 10 years. Going into care was really hard because i had to leave all my friends, family and most of all my brother and sister. I have been in a lot of foster placements and only one permanent foster unit.
