Shanice Fleming always thought she wanted to be a chef. She became one, working throughout New York City. However, after 10 years, burnout set in and Fleming wanted more.

She thought flower farming might be her niche, but never saw farmers of color.

An opportunity to work on a farm almost didn’t happen when she became overwhelmed by the number of bees.

However, she dug deep, understanding her decision could blossom into an opportunity for her and others like her.

Now she has her own flower business, Queenz Cut Flower Farm.

Learn more about how she hopes her journey inspires others by watching the video of Elaine Houstons story.
