Fans of the Freeform series The Fosters will agree that each and every episode brings on new drama – but also major life lessons to be taken away from those situations. Similarly, all of the actors who have spent time working on the show have taken away many things from their roles, and have each learned some profound lessons from their characters. Of course, we as fans are right there along with them taking in their experiences.
In fact, through International Women's Day yesterday and actress Cierra Ramirez's birthday today, we noticed a ton of fans tweeting the actors to let them know that they're particularly inspired by the strong women in the series and have learned from their struggles and accomplishments.
