Fostering Change Podcast | Lifting Each Other Up to Make the World a Better Tomorrow for Youth in Foster Care with Lisa Cohen

“Understand there is more of a reality out there than you’ve been living through.”

Today’s episode of Fostering Change will truly inspire you! Rob Scheer interviews Lisa Cohen, someone he shares much in common. They were both in foster care, both from Washington, DC and following foster care, both joined the Navy. They also both have “bucked the trend” and have been successful in business and in life. They share how they moved forward in their careers, they didn’t talk about their experiences in foster care, as they didn’t want it to be used against them.

Lisa has also loved sports her entire life and was a “Muhammad Ali addict”, and became a championship boxer! She writes about these experiences in her memoir, “Being Too Fierce”.

Lisa holds the esteemed position of President of the Rotary Club of Washington DC. Under her leadership, she has spearheaded an initiative called “Rotary’s Championship Fight for Youth,” which aims to provide essential services to foster youth in the Washington DC metropolitan area. She also works as a Behavioral Clinician for Sasha Bruce Youthwork, an organization that is the leading provider of homeless youth services in the DC Region and have opened their first Foster House.
