WEPOWER Feature: ‘I choose growth’: My story of transforming an abandoned lot into a thriving urban farm, offering fresh food and jobs for my community.

I’ve always had problems with fighting in school. The first time I got suspended for fighting in middle school, my mama told me, “You gonna get suspended while fighting on class time, you better get them grades together.” It was important to her that no matter how much I got in trouble that I remembered to keep my grades up. I never forgot that.
