"One of the happiest moments of my life would be an Amped moment. I'm from Birmingham, Alabama and I have gone through a lot of death within the last couple years. Three generations of my family died in a very short period of time. So, me and my babies moved and are here by ourselves. Amped made me know what community was. Even in the midst of my struggles and trials and tribulations, it was my birthday and they came in and surprised me with birthday cake and gifts. The whole entire Amped was singing happy birthday. That was my best Amped moment. It made me realize that I have a family here, within the community. I know that they care about me." - Ms. Love, Chickasaw
