My experience was the best learning experience and heartfelt.

I learned about African-American leaders whom I never knew about, who played big roles in the civil rights movement. They don’t teach you this in school. It sparked something. I called my mom and I asked her if she knew who B.B. King and Fannie Lou Hamer were and she said, “No.” To know things like that is good because you get to educate other people. I am going to bring my voice back to my community — I’m going to be one of the heart pieces that can start something.
