An inside look into the lives of our girls in the GSBB program.
Shamari calls the area she lives in “medium Tulsa”. It’s not quite the Hispanic east or white midtown or the black north side, it’s somewhere in between. A landscape of car dealers and wholesale outlets, storage units and by-the-week motels, like the one where she lives with her little sister Shania, her 22-year-old cousin Destaney and Destaney’s two young children. It is an area that exists to service impermanence, the state in which Shamari has lived much of her young life.
