Listen: Latavia and I met in the Pearls For Teen Girls office in the Brewer's Hill neighborhood, where she felt incredibly at home. Understandably so -- prior to becoming an alumnae of Pearls, she was the longest tenured Pearls Girl, having been with the program from 6th grade through the end of high school. What's a Pearls Girl like? Meet Latavia Patterson:

LaTavia is headed off to college in early August, which doesn't give her much time to decompress this summer. We'll hear from her again before you know it.

(Note: The music for the piece all comes from Owen Pallet's project Final Fantasy and the album Has A Good Home.)
