Margret spent 5 years in Pennsylvania's foster care system.

Margaret has hopped from placement to placement, but currently resides with her first foster home. During high school, she served as the Sergeant in East High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC). Margaret also volunteers during school, at nursing homes, with little children, and through church functions. She is a member of Erie County Office of Children and Youth (OCY) Youth Advisory Board and the Independent Living Program Youth Advisory Board. Margaret's dream job would be to become a game developer for Bethesda Game Studios, the creators of Skyrim.

Quote: I give back because I have not come from a great background. I want other youth coming into the system to get all the help they need while also having fun and feel like a "normal" kid.
