"I got married about a year ago and it's not going so hot. My lil husband is abusive and things. So, I got this job and it was going good. Then he came and made me quit my job. He's not working, so that leaves me to come to places like this to get food and clothes.  I was born in the West End but I wasn't raised in the West End. Coming back was a little different. As a kid, growing up in the West End was fun. We used to run around in the streets and play. We would get in fights but the next day, we were friends. It was rough but it seemed like there was a lot of love. These days, it doesn't seem like there's anywhere. In the West End, it seems like the love is gone.   If my life was an album, it would be called 'The Storm That Never Ends' because my whole life has been a bunch of storms. I mean, I've gotten through them. Let's see, my mother passed away when I was two. My dad left us at a foster home and we stayed there until I was four. Then we went to a family member and I had a lot of physical, mental, and sexual abuse that happened to me. Since the age of two, my life has been one big storm. My God and my three kids keeps me positive. I have my moments but when I get to that point where I'm going to do something stupid, God's like, 'Hey, now!'. Plus, I have a love for people. Like if I do something crazy, I may not be able to help the next person who is going through a storm and give them a smile or a hug.  My long time dream is to be able to provide for my children. I also want to be able to be a service to other people  and I want my music heard." - Brittany & Kevin, Park Hill
