I saw this young woman as we stood at a corner waiting for the light to change. She was very open to the project, but the light was poor, so we talked as we went in search of a better location.
This is Jessica. She’s naturally outgoing and a great conversationalist, so I really enjoyed getting to know her a little. She is on the hunt for a summer job, a requirement to finish her program at the local technical college. She quickly added, however, that she doesn’t really want to pursue that avenue of employment any more, and has actually enrolled at the local university to study Sociology, as she wants to be a social worker. I’m very glad Jessica was so willing to chat: meeting people like her are highlights of this project.
