Shanice Fleming had always imagined herself as a chef. She became one and worked all over New York City. After ten years, however, burnout set in, and Fleming desired more.
She considered flower farming as a possible career path, but she had never seen any farmers of color.
When she became overwhelmed by the number of bees, she almost missed out on a chance to work on a farm.
She dug deep, realizing her decision could turn into an opportunity for her and others like her.
Queenz Cut Flower Farm is her new flower business.
