“You see, folks who grow up like me often take what we get. We don’t expect a lot. When we look around, we don’t see a lot of success stories. It almost seems like you’re destined to keep repeating the same patterns. But I looked around and saw two other interns that were in college and I wanted to be like them. The staff at the Conservancy never gave up on me and kept encouraging me. They believed in me."
