Good morning Mrs. Boyd, I would love to share my story. Never knew my father, mother was a crack addict. The streets raised me. I almost lost my life to teen dating abuse. Pregnant at 15, two abortions, marijuana and pcp addicted. I sold crack and marijuana, and worked as a stripper in the clubs. I stole $8.00-$1000.00 worth of merchandise from the mall every week. I was involved in other crimes too. Pimps, gangsters, and hustlers were my friends and family. That's the life I knew. I am a changed woman now by the grace of God. This is just making a long story short. My life of hard times began when I was 4 yrs. old. Living in a
Domestic violent home, molested at 7, almost raped at 14. Only by the grace of God did I survive this all. I went through and over came all these to help someone else. That's what God told me when I asked him why and what did I do to deserve it.
I wanted to see what your website was all about. I am a teacher and school counselor in the inner city of phoenix. I work in a middle school where gangs and drugs are a part of life. I want so bad to give them strategies and power to avoid, it but it is around them every day. I am looking for programs curriculum or anything I can use to help them avoid this life when it is all they know. It is not enough to say "dont join a gang". The kids start experiementing with it so early like 9 or 10 by tagging and talking about getting jumped in. I am also looking for seminars or conferences for me to learn more about the lifestyle of gangs in phoenix. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
