Syreeta Martin shown with her two daughters.

Syreeta Martin graduated from Temple last week with a degree in journalism.

She and I didn’t get along that well at first, but she and I overcame our differences to become a good team. She covered Strawberry Mansion and Brewerytown and earned one of the highest grades in philadelphianeighborhoods.com

This space usually deals with stories about underserved and underreported stories in Philadelphia neighborhoods.

Martin, 24, is a single mother with two children. Her story, which was reported in Ebony, is certainly an inspiration to me and should be for everyone! See the story at http://www.ebony.com/life/i-had-a-baby-at-16-another-at-20-and-today-is-my-college-graduation
