Welcome to Episode Five - Grateful State of Mind with joemil r. santos.
joemil r. santos and I met at the My People's Market event a few years ago, and we became instant friends. He purchased the "Peaceful State of Mind" Sweatshirt from my Refutees booth, and we had an in-depth conversation about community and how we all need a good reminder to keep us going through the day.
A son of immigrant parents who did everything they could to ensure a healthy environment of growth. They nearly went bankrupt and sacrificed so much to get him and his sister through school. Though life isn't always easy, and Joemil needed a way to express his personal story. Poetry helped Joemil have a deeper understanding of family, connection, and what it means to be the poetry he so beautifully writes.
Joemil's work with New Seasons Market has allowed him a platform to take community involvement to new levels and enriching the culture within. Bringing a sense of family and gratitude to work has helped him grow his team, his work, and his own life.
