North Philadelphia: Temple Graduate Overcomes Obstacles
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

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 https://www.ebony.com/life/i-had-a-baby-at-16-another-at-20-and-today-is-my-college-graduation
