Doogie Lish Sandtiger – Left care at 16, Adopted at 23.

Our guest this evening is Doogie Lish Sandtiger. Doogie left foster care at 16 because the State was not meeting his needs and became homeless for a significant period of time while continuing to attend school. He ultimately moved in with one of his closest friend’s parents, a move that could have happened while he was in foster care but due to bureaucratic obstacles it did not. After obtaining two Associates degree and a bachelor’s degrees, Doogie graduated last May with his Master’s Degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in poetry. Hear his fascinating and inspiring story and one of his most powerful poems. Pat O’Brien and Chester Jackson hosts Play Radio Show Here
