“Somalia Knight, 25 years young, was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. As a child, she looked up to her great grandmother. Not only was she a pillar in the community, but in addition to having 8 kids of her own, she made a point to take care of everyone she knew. As a child, Somalia was shy and kept to herself. She was bullied for her ears and lanky body. She was bullied from the first day of middle school to the end of high school. As she got older, the thicker her skin became…..the stronger the woman stood.
