The Sweet Potato Project Youth Speak at Afro World

Dashia addressing crowd during Q&A segment of the program

I can’t tell you how proud I was of the Sweet Potato Project youth who spoke about their experiences and took orders for cookies at Afro World (7276 Natural Bridge Road) on Saturday. They were confident, engaging and funny. It boggles my mind how much progress these future entrepreneurs and leaders have made in just a few short months. Because of them, I am confident that the term “at-risk” can be eliminated from our lexicon. — Sylvester Brown, Jr.
