Cohort 17

Myasia Irons

To me, Green City Force means sustainability, family, togetherness and unity. I chose to become a Corps Member with GCF because I saw an opportunity that could help me grow as a person. Also it helped me to see a different world, of going green and the green economy; how to become more green efficient and mostly how to farm in NYC while passing the knowledge to my friends and family. Before GCF I was looking for a job because I had to leave school. At that point in my life, I was lost and didn’t know what to do. The most important thing I learned in GCF was to always have GRIT no matter what you do in life and to keep going no matter what the things are in jobs, opportunities, and anything that comes my way. My plans after GCF are to go back to school to get my Associate’s Degree. I also want to continue to work, finish up in starting my company and also travel. I want to thank my mom for giving me the flyer to have this opportunity to be apart of GCF and for being there for me. Also I want to thank my friends for keeping me going and motivated everyday.
