Jaxon Wood

My name is Jaxon Wood and I’m 20 yrs old from Butte County. I’m attending Butte College to achieve my Associate’s Degree in Business and Entrepreneurship. I’ve been in the foster care system since I was 9 months old. It became worse once I was 12 and got sent to a group home after experiencing homelessness. While in the system, I experienced a lot of tension for being a part of the LGBTQ community, so I hope to make a difference for future youth impacted by the system so they don’t experience the same issues.
