Cohort 21

Keisha Scott

I never knew how much a training program could mean to me. I have felt lost for a long time, working horrible retail jobs and I had no idea what I wanted to do. COVID-19 has changed our world so drastically and finding work has been especially hard. Green City Force offered financial help and job training that is very hard to find in this pandemic. I did not know what exactly to expect during the program. The one thing I knew to expect was learning how to farm and working outdoors. Fortunately enough I learned so much more. They have taught me how to stand up for myself and to never be afraid of your dreams. GCF showed me what it is like to have a real support system and people who actually want to see you succeed. I care so much about this program and everyone in it because we are all here for each other. We all know what it’s like to feel lost or to want better for yourself but not know the steps to get there. We all came to Green City Force for the same reason, to do something with ourselves and to make change within our lives. After becoming a Corps Member, I have embraced my intellectual abilities and know my self-worth. Green City Force has really inspired me to be a better person professionally and personally. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I know what to do with my life. And I am so grateful that GCF and my family has helped me through this journey.
