my journey

"I led a life filled with the answers but had no way to get them out. Often my thoughts and ideas felt trapped. Sometimes I was so full of thoughts that needed to get out, I would blurt them out at the most inappropriate times and places. But I had a dream to go on to college and to go into a helping profession. So I had to figure it out on my own."

- Joy Cobb tells her story.
