153 249.3231That was about it, other than that yeah we all lived together.251.1812 
156 253.1061so what-253.6954 
158 254.0265okay so you said you didn't play outside so what did you do as a kid like [growing up-]257.7544

173 278.8709and other places.279.7829 
174DCB_int_01279.8126So you were safe in [an unsafe] neighborhood because you had [people-]283.7904
177 283.6503[People] yeah, because these were people that we'd known, like e- although it was a very unsafe neighborhood it was just like,288.7167 
178 289.1181it was more familiar. Like, we knew these people they wouldn't hurt us and things like that. They did things to other people but they wouldn't do it to us.294.9673

257DCB_int_01420.0086[And high school?]420.8206
260 422.0855[Why did you hate going-] okay.423.7472
261DCB_se1_ag2_f_02423.7678Because it was the neighborhood school and I wasn't supposed to go to /RD-SCHOOL-2/, I was supposed to- during this time my mom was getting- cause I had429.8756
263 430.1997a niece430.8824 
265 431.3843and a brother they're the same age so my mom and my sister were pregnant at the same time.434.4910 
267DCB_se1_ag2_f_02434.8671And so435.3578
269 435.5634my mom was trying to transfer all us to a private school so they- their scholarship had went through, they had started pro- my scholarship was still in the process so,442.6840

279 453.2873I-453.5514 
281 453.6395the kids were rough to me like, you know, I didn't know how it was gonna go but it ended up being a great experience.458.3857 
283 458.6276Like in the beginning I was like, I don't wanna go to this school, but my mom was like, well there's no other options, but I ended up loving it. But in the beginning I was like, I don't wanna go to this school.465.3233 
285DCB_se1_ag2_f_02466.8280Cause it was neighborhoods like w- they were rough, [<laugh>] like, I didn't wanna go there.471.3553
287DCB_int_01471.3473But no- but I mean why did it [end up being- embracing] the [experience?]473.9751
288DCB_se1_ag2_f_02472.2358[Oh why'd I li-]473.0264
290 473.7685[I think] because it was so hood.475.2831 
294 479.0721[I ain't like it] because it was hood but it was great because it was [hood.]481.3635
295DCB_se1_ag2_f_02481.2211[Right, you know how you-482.2851

383 606.3847Ninth and tenth was smooth,607.7814

395DCB_se1_ag2_f_02616.7440[before] we get to that. <laugh>618.0546
396 618.3287So when I turned seventeen is when my mom got really really really really really sick.622.2277
398 622.4999Like she wasn't supposed to make it past December of625.0235 
400 626.3857whatever that year was that I was seventeen. /Is/ [that two-thousand seven?] Yeah two-thousand seven.630.0806 
401DCB_se2_ag2_f_01628.3598[Two-thousand seven.]629.0851
402DCB_se1_ag2_f_02630.5488So I was living with her and her husband in District Heights,634.1557
404 634.3078they had a house.635.0851 
406 635.5324But me and her husband did not get along because638.0564 
408 638.5470I felt like he took advantage of her because she was very sick,641.8895 
410DCB_se1_ag2_f_02642.5128and like would talk to her any type of way just do anything to her and things like that.646.3230
411 646.6399And my mother couldn't do anything on her own like she couldn't wipe her own butt, she couldn't649.8398
413 651.1793clothe herself, she couldn't- nothing, like she had like the mind of a two year old she would just go in the kitchen,655.5813 
415 655.7454cut on the stove and657.1094 
417 657.7555like- and just walk away, and stuff be on the stove, like so you had to660.8889 
419 660.9850tend to her like a- all the time.662.6624 
421 663.0672So me and him had got into a heated- oh and then I was getting child support from my dad.666.3535 
423 666.6689My dad just disappeared after a while.668.0811 
425 668.2989But he-668.6630 
427 668.8431the child support was ending.669.8231 
429 670.5239And so I was like, you know, I need my money to take care of me like my mom can't take care of me and my child support so me and him got into it one day and he was like, well you gotta go.677.4257 
431 677.8205And like just put me out.678.8178 
433 679.3812And so,680.2092

744DCB_se1_ag2_f_021100.6870No that was- yeah, that was one of the reasons why I didn't take school seriously at first because it's like1105.9404
746 1106.3096I didn't wanna go to school for four years and1108.4799 
748 1108.6359it's not something that I really wanted to do, so it was just like, until I found out what I really wanted to do then /now I'm not going to/ school, so.1114.3118

942 1411.1883a while ago, so he just was messing with just1413.2030 
944 1414.2338I guess girls that he- she didn't think that he should be with.1416.9475

963 1438.2698um, he started catching feelings, he was like, well /look, you gotta-/1441.4885

983 1471.2284within one week.1472.3278 
985 1472.7451But it was just like, I'm cheating, like- Oh don't- I- I didn't-1476.0449 
987 1476.9883cheating ain't my thing, but I felt like that was- that was just-1480.1094

1105 1662.1933[So- <laugh>]1662.9893 
1107 1663.3798But it was like,1664.2885 
1108 1664.3899/RD-NAME-2/ was like that protector as well like, he's like,1667.1280
1110 1667.3425if I was around him, you're not about to talk no trash about me, you're not about to- you're gonna respect me, and it was like one of those thing, and /RD-NAME-2/ didn't make me feel protected.1674.3552 
1112 1674.6546Like-1675.1519 
1114 1675.2178so it was just like, both of them was giving me different feelings cause like,1677.9018 
1116 1679.0152I- I felt wanted and I made him happy and he showed it he was,1683.0143 
1118 1683.3797he told me how he felt and /RD-NAME-2/ didn't like,1685.9443 
1120 1686.3949it- it was just two different things. But my sister was like, you know,1689.7706 
1122 1690.0083s- even before she met /RD-NAME-2/ she was like, come on,1692.8270 
1124 1693.0048he a street dude,1693.8435 
1126 1694.3427I was like-1695.1613 
1128 1696.1489She was like, yeah he is street dude, <laugh> she was like, that's why you like- I was like, no that's not why I like him.1700.1855 
1130 1700.5058But then after a while, like my family wanted me to stay with /RD-NAME-2/ because1703.8402 
1132 1704.1894the type of guy he was but they didn't know like, how he was.1706.7477 
1134 1706.8941E- every guy shows to be a nice person1708.8993 
1136 1709.1546while they around your family but behind closed doors that's1711.6680 
1138 1711.8932not how they treat you. So everybody was like,1713.5529 
1140 1713.8044team /RD-NAME-2/, team /RD-NAME-2/ but1715.2804 
1142 1715.7157eventually everybody is now team /RD-NAME-2/.1717.9811 
1144 1718.7246And so,1719.2465 
1146 1719.4305[then-]1719.8809 
1147DCB_int_011719.4418[Are y'all team] /RD-NAME-2/?1720.3605
1148DCB_se1_ag2_f_021721.2817Are you team /RD-NAME-2/? <laugh>1722.6864

1153 1729.2221for-1730.2780
1155 1731.8393two thousand fourteen of November and then he propo- no- Oh lord.1735.8845

1159 1740.2264Um,1741.0863 
1161 1741.2778and then he proposed to me1743.4219 
1163 1743.7448this January.1744.8368 
1165 1745.6685And I-1746.0778 
1167 1746.5735I got pregnant by him last October.1748.3120 
1169 1749.3334So everything just kind of like-1750.5774 
1170DCB_int_011750.7088Mm-hm, when are you gonna get married?1752.0541
1172 1754.2611Mkay, take some [time.]1755.3571 
1173DCB_se1_ag2_f_021755.0796[S- no], it shouldn't take no time.1757.1423
1174 1757.4464So when I asked him when we're getting married it's one of those things like,1761.2917
1176 1761.7721right now1762.9308 
1178 1763.2528we need to focus on the baby then after the baby, focus on1766.6165 
1180 1767.7824it's the wedding and then it's just like,1769.7416 
1182 1770.5010I- I just feel like, you shouldn't have proposed to me if you wasn't ready to do this, like at least give me a date.1775.0870 
1184 1775.4512That's the question everyone asks, so when's the date?1777.4259 
1186 1779.2299And it just makes me look dumb, <laugh> that's- /and I just feel like- it just meant like,/ give me something like, a round about or something.1784.3404 
1188 1784.5769It doesn't have to be the exact day but maybe you could /saying/ it's1786.8036 
1190 1787.2216December, next July, or something like just give me a round about and it's not that so,1791.1993 
1192 1791.8526that's why the ring is no longer on my finger.1793.6513 
1193DCB_se2_ag2_f_011793.6137God, this girl's annoying.1795.2097
1194DCB_se1_ag2_f_021795.4398<laugh> Because it's like,1796.8544
1196 1797.1445at the end of the day you're not about to-1798.6202 
1198 1799.3187When a man sees that, or anyone sees that, that means you're- you're- you're- you're off- you're off limits, you know what I'm saying? And I feel like that was his way like, keeping me on a leash, like,1807.3138 
1200 1807.6532and you can't go nowhere you're pregnant, got my baby, and all this. And it's just like, you're not ready to make that real commitment yet.1812.1555 
1202 1812.3883So it was just like,1813.0353 
1204 1813.2681until you're ready to make that real commitment then,1815.2875 
1206 1815.5999yeah.1815.9754

1251 1877.5374And then,1878.5441 
1253 1879.1382/RD-NAME-3/ and I, my kids'-1881.2034

1269 1894.7886And /RD-NAME-2/,1895.9189 
1271 1896.2380I met her through /RD-NAME-3/ and /RD-NAME-2/ and I met her through /RD-NAME-3/, through the mentoring.1899.5386 
1273 1900.2558No I been-1900.9291 
1275 1901.0042I been met1901.5776 
1277 1901.7853/RD-NAME-2/ like, long time ago.1903.6402 
1279 1903.7416But we- me and her never like1905.2511 
1281 1905.5402got close a long time ago /until/ recently then we started1908.5566 
1283 1908.8345getting close.1909.3677 
1284DCB_int_011909.6456So tell me a little bit about the mentoring program.1911.7429
1287 1914.1076me and /RD-NAME-3/- okay, my mom had a mentoring prog-1916.4357 
1289 1916.5409mentoring program before she got real sick,1918.4082 
1291 1918.8438but she would do it at her house and it was named, Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman.1921.9717 
1293 1922.5237Um, so it ended1923.7184 
1295 1923.9630because she couldn't no longer do it, and so /RD-NAME-3/ was like,1926.9444 
1297 1927.4626why don't we- why don't we start it back up? And I was like, sure, y- you know, she was president, I was the vice president.1931.9487 
1299 1932.3790But I think her and my mom had a falling out,1934.8346 
1301 1935.4855cause it was like, /RD-NAME-3/ wanted to do something, my mom was like, no,1938.6059 
1303 1938.9514we can't do that because-1940.3719 
1305 1940.5709I don't know why they couldn't do it but she was just like, no, so /RD-NAME-3/ was like, I'm just gonna start my own.1944.2176 
1307 1944.6038So it was like, okay.1945.5737 
1309 1945.7877I guess I'll just go along with you then, like,1948.3486 
1311 1948.7466help you do you. And b- it wasn't like no shade to my mom or nothing.1952.0071 
1313 1952.2399But it's just like, I still wanted to be a mentor you know, we- we can do /??/ a later time in life, /like/ now.1956.7689 
1315 1957.0587/RD-NAME-3/ wanted to do her own1958.5119 
1317 1958.8611mentoring route, I'm still gonna support. So we ended up /doing/ um,1961.9101 
1319 1962.0829mentoring.1962.7224 
1321 1963.0190I had two young ladies, /RD-NAME-2/ and /RD-NAME-2/.1965.9014 
1323 1966.6200/RD-NAME-2/ was seventeen at the time, and /RD-NAME-2/ was like, thirteen.1969.2510 
1325 1969.9706Like thirteen at the time.1971.3186 
1327 1972.0922<ts>1972.1710 
1329 1972.7793Um, I didn't spend that much time with /RD-NAME-2/ but I spent more time with /RD-NAME-2/.1976.4035 
1331 1977.4854I don't know why cause I thought I would1979.0550 
1333 1979.3491connect more with the seventeen year old but I connected more with the thirteen year old.1982.7173 
1335 1983.1604But then I eventually fell off, like I don't even to talk to her anymore.1986.1859 
1336DCB_int_011986.9691To either of them?1987.6784
1338DCB_int_011988.6663Oh, okay.1989.2383

1704 2496.6997Right now it's just like, okay let's- let's experience this, let's go here, let's do that, because she's-2500.6023
1706 2500.8257she's so like cooped up in the house all the time it's like that's- you're not living that's just existing like, [you need to] get out and do some things, so.2507.5010 
1708DCB_se1_ag2_f_022507.9404And then because of her- I was having this conversation with2510.6195
1710 2511.0686them two and /RD-NAME-2/,2512.3406 
1712 2512.5000that's the reason why I can't have boundaries with men like the moment a man try to like give me boundaries and restrictions,2517.7188 
1714 2518.0440it doesn't work for me because I seen my mom succeed more without a man,2522.6759 
1716 2523.1404then when she was with a man it-2525.5098 
1718 2525.8608it- everything started being taken away from her.2528.0555

1849 2703.8826E- even when I know I c- there's a possibility I'm about to die I'm never like, oh I'm about to die, but I think the scariest time probably-2709.7141 
1851 2709.9576I'm probably probably telling too much but2711.1074 
1853 2711.4253when I used to-2712.2066 
1855 2712.4932to go with /RD-NAME-2/ to wherever he used to go.2714.8683 
1857 2715.3933And it's just like, you just see some things and was like, I could really die right here, somebody could really just come in here and shoot this place up and I'm just right here chilling so I think-2722.1042 
1859 2722.5397<laugh> I think that's the w- like the scariest moments for me.2725.3968 
1860DCB_se1_ag2_f_042725.6289[But you enjoyed] it.2726.4369
1861DCB_se1_ag2_f_022725.7075[But it was-]2726.0968

1868DCB_se1_ag2_f_042733.5361[You're crazy.]2734.3826
1869DCB_int_012734.3969[So you're a thrill seeker.]2735.6326
1870DCB_se1_ag2_f_022735.4967[Yeah, like- <laugh>]2737.5646
1871DCB_se1_ag2_f_042737.2611[So if somebody] come in here stick up this joint you'll be thrilled.2739.9771
1872DCB_se1_ag2_f_022740.4326But it's like, I'm one of those people like, if somebody was, I know exactly what I'd do. Not saying that I'm gonna make it out of here but I know exactly what I'm gonna do. I'm not gonna be the one like,2748.8590
1874 2749.2943stuck in shock like I know exactly what I would do like to try to get out that situation.2753.0555 
1875DCB_se1_ag2_f_042753.0610Oh I'm the scariest person [/inaudible/]2755.2182
1876DCB_int_012754.3503[Me too, like I don't even like to get stopped for a traffic ticket.]2758.0826
1879DCB_se1_ag2_f_042758.7612[Right.] Chest hurting.2760.3185
1880DCB_int_012760.4003Like I get upset when they send the little thing in my mail like, um,2763.5004
1882 2764.0504you were going [fifty-seven and it was a forty-five.]2766.9039 
1884DCB_int_012767.2361Like, [damn.]2768.3627
1885DCB_se1_ag2_f_042767.7718/??/ I remember that time we went to Busch Gardens y'all talked me into that ride, I don't do [roller coasters.]2772.8456
1888DCB_int_012774.0504You a [roller coaster?]2774.9290
1889DCB_se1_ag2_f_042774.2218[I got on that roller coaster I almost died.]2776.2658
1893DCB_se2_ag2_f_012776.2862Then when we got pulled over he thought we was prostitutes.2778.3736
1894DCB_se1_ag2_f_022778.3110Yeah. [The only thing I- I'm-2779.9539
1895DCB_se1_ag2_f_042778.6289[<laugh> Wait a minute I missed that one.]2782.3290
1896DCB_se1_ag2_f_022780.5397[the only thing I'm afraid of is dying itself.]2783.6483
1897DCB_se2_ag2_f_012782.5005[It was good.]2783.1617
1900DCB_se1_ag2_f_022784.6468I don't know.2785.2174
1902 2785.4896Because I think it's the unknown that's the only thing that you can't go and [/aks somebody like, how was your experience?] so I think-2791.0851 
1903DCB_se1_ag2_f_042788.4864[Oh yeah.]2790.0829
1904DCB_int_012791.3113[No you can't go] they-2792.5903

1906 2792.8042So,2793.2935
1908 2793.8221that's the only thing.2794.9507 
1910 2795.3972It's-2795.7222 
1912 2795.8258it's just so like-2797.2578 
1914 2797.4613No one- I mean,2798.3720 
1916 2798.6042like I said I was in church, you know heaven and hell and stuff but no one-2801.4420 
1918 2802.0258I don't have no one that can verify for me and tell me like this is-2805.3721 
1920 2805.4900this what happens. Like, so th-2807.2650 
1922 2807.4936it's just the unknown of it like, that's it.2809.5365 
1924 2810.8292And then- and if-2812.1186 
1926 2812.3257it's-2812.6686 
1928 2812.7722it's not just that it's like dying young.2815.1433 
1930 2815.2687Like if [I'm-]2815.9487 
1932DCB_se1_ag2_f_022816.7578if I'm older and like did everything that I wanted to do in life, nothing is-2820.8972
1934 2821.2044all the-2821.7111 
1936 2822.3185nothing I feel is incomplete then I'm- I'm okay, you know, that's my time, but like,2826.6851 
1938 2826.9865/RD-NAME-2/'s case, I just feel like that was just so unfair like she had so many things she wanted to do.2831.5543 
1940 2831.8293And it's like, she wasn't a bad person, why was that taken away from her?2834.6985 
1942 2835.0292And stuff like that and it's like, you have all these cruel people, not- and I don't wish death on anyone but it's just like-2839.6958 
1944 2840.4899She was- she was like the opposite of me.2842.7859 
1946 2842.9936Like she was the- the one that was like, so cautious about life, it's like we-2846.3536 
1948 2846.5471let's go do this, she's like, no, that doesn't even make sense like, why would we do this?2849.7936

2069 3014.1828So let's talk a little about DC, have you seen the city3017.6829
2071 3018.2651change? Do you feel like it's changing?3020.3437 
2073 3020.5435Or do you feel like it's the same as you remember as a child?3023.1293 
2074DCB_se1_ag2_f_023023.6650Um, it's changed.3024.8290
2076 3025.7651No, I'm not gonna say it's changed cause it mighta been the same but because I'm older I'm allowed to see more things.3031.3508 
2078 3031.6580And like once I got thinking I was just protected from everything, but-3034.5507 
2080 3035.0615Um,3035.7721 
2082 3036.8865I think3037.8252 
2084 3039.0078I don't like DC no more though because it's like now we're always attached to such negative things, like,3044.2340 
2086 3044.7185it's like rare you hear DC as something positive beside3047.2793 
2088 3047.4079the President, it's just like we're always attached to something negative.3049.8880 
2090 3050.1685And it makes people look at us like we're just a group of3052.6614 
2092 3053.8365people that's here to3054.7901 
2094 3054.9544destroy.3055.7830 
2096 3055.9363And that's the [only thing I don't like.]3057.2793 
2100 3059.2222So it's like,3059.7795 
2102 3059.9758now people like, I gotta get out of DC because DC is so horrible, let's move to Virginia, Maryland, stuff like that because it's like DC now has this3066.2878

2113 3080.5971It's- uh- mm, I like how it's changing now though, I like how it's changing because it's like a- it's a mixture of people now.3086.3401
2115DCB_se1_ag2_f_023086.7614It's like it's so diverse now.3088.0720
