He also works with the Journey House to give back to the youth. Pichetrungsi has become a writer and has children of his own.

    With over 480,000 foster youth in America at any given time, our feature film, Trials and Tribulations, will create a positive platform for current and former foster youth to be engaged in a crisis that involves them directly. Although Trials and Tribulations is a creative voice, the message within the project was created to motivate, uplift and raise awareness to change all the misconceptions and stereotypes surrounding foster care youth. I sincerely appreciate Jessica taking the time and considering our project for her essay, and I hope all of you join the Trials and Tribulations community to bring this film project into fruition. Thank you for your support.
