I (Mary Elizabeth Fuentes Valdez) was notified on November 21st that I had been selected to appear in a Random Profile to be posted on the Texas Bar Blog page on December 2nd. Why lie -- I didn't even know there was a Texas Bar Blog! As it turns out it is a very interesting page and I got a chance to be on it. In addition to telling a little bit about myself, I also took the opportunity to mention YTIA and some of our activities. This organization means so much to me and to Brenda (Knowles) because we know how much it is needed. Lord willing, someone, out of the 92,000 attorneys in the State of Texas, or their clients, will check out our website and feel moved to work with us in our endeavor to assist youths leaving foster care. I'll keep you posted!
Mary E. Valdez is one of the co-founders of YTIA, an attorney with an interest in (hopefully) making things a little bit better.
