Hola, my name is Yocasta and I am 21 years old. I currently live at Casa Azul with my four children. Over the past two years my life has changed dramatically and my life has been restored, but I know this is only the beginning to the work ahead of me. My favorite color is green and my favorite food is Dominican rice and chicken. I want to be a police officer when I am older, and I hope to empower and protect other young girls who have been victimized by abuse and trafficking. I know my story has power and I want to help others in the future. I am currently working on my education in order to return to school and gain my high school diploma. I came into the program not being able to read or write and now I can write my own name. I love my four children; Jael, Enrique, Domingo and Johanna. Everything I do is for them and to provide the best quality of life. My dream is to have my own home and to keep moving forward, leaving the past behind.
