“As a Liberian woman…
…who migrated from Liberia to Saint Paul as a child, I have experienced good, bad, and indifference from all. In my 36 years on this earth I have realized that regardless of who you are and what you have, we are all trying to rise to our full potential.
What I do know is that there are structures in place that determine who can rise and how far.”
