Episode #6: "Not the Normal Teenager"

Jun 21, 2017

Last week you heard from Deneira, a graduate of Frederick Douglass High School in Baltimore. She shared a little bit about her life with her mom and grandmother. Now she’ll give us some insight into her senior year. A month or so ago, Deneira told me she’s “not the normal teenager.” Who knows if such a thing exists, but those familiar with Deneira will tell you that she is an intelligent, resilient and unique young adult.  

In her last piece for More than Words, you’ll hear some phone conversations she had with her sister about how they cope with anxiety and depression.
