My name is Nateneya Samuels. I wanted to nominate myself because I know that one day that I will be giving back to someone else with an amazing story triumph . First of all, Homewood is more than just a community to me... Its home. I lived in Homewood from 2013 to 2016. Living here was a dream for me to raise my children. However, in 2016 in a blink of an eye everything was taken away from me... my home, my belongings, my life because I chose to gain the courage to leave an abusive marriage and to protect my children. My future goals is to speak and advocate for victims of domestic violence. One day... I will be helping others build their lives back together again. Hopefully, help others starting in Homewood where my pain will turn into a blessing for others.
