I am a single mother of two grown children. I am also an addict and a felon. But today I am not defined by those words. I am a survivor. I am working to better myself. That is one of the reasons I’m in Together We Bake, to better myself. I heard about the program before I left the jail I was in.
My favorite part of the program so far has been the teamwork that I have experienced. It has been nice to be a part of a group again. I have also enjoyed making the chocolate pretzels we made with a guest baker! (Thanks Erica!)
After the program is over I plan on finding work in the local area. I plan on staying in the Alexandria area. I hope to continue to use and lean on the women from TWB as a resource while I am on my journey of recovery.
