Upon my arrival to the Sweet Potato Project last year, I didn’t have many expectations. Not because of anything in particular, but because programs like this that I have attended in the past haven’t lasted long and I have no connection with those people from those various programs today.

After the second week in 2012, I began to see people coming out of their “Shy-Shell” and I began to make good friends, while learning, and getting paid for it. My experience with the Sweet Potato Project has not only taught me basic entrepreneurial skills and lessons in leadership, but it also has helped me make me good friends that I’m sure will always, be supportive.
