Her road to her Promised Land started when she was a teenage parent at age 16 and lived in the housing projects in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her life’s path had started on a road she had not planned. However, she decided that she wanted to become a success and not a statistic. Education and hard work would be the “recipe” to her Promised Land.
