The most interesting thing to me about St. Pete Youth Farm is that it is combined set of skills that we are learning from gardening to entrepreneurship skills. We also learn other things such as leadership skills, public speaking, creativity and so on. I want to become very successful in law, attend a university and become either a lawyer or a probation officer.
