Hi, my name is Mimi, and this will be my ninth summer at Youth Farm. Over the past nine summers, I have had an opportunity to grow up with community members who share some similar joys I do. One of the things that I love most about Youth Farm is the diversity of our whole community. Growing up with people with a range ethnic and religious backgrounds is an experience that I wish upon everyone. My monthly blog post will hopefully show you all what Youth Farm is like from the point of view of a Youth Farm Project LEAD.
