For Onnia Harris and her family, the Pullman neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago is home, and home is a special place. But when local jobs were few and far between, Harris had to travel more than two hours to get to work. That all changed when the method factory came to town. Today, empowered by the skills she’s gained at her new job at method, Harris trains her coworkers with patience and encouragement. By working in her hometown, Harris is able to positively impact the community where she and her family live. Now, she says, all that’s missing is a superhero cape to match her unstoppable state of mind.
This Great Big Story is a paid contribution by method.
