The purpose of this project was to explore the impact on a young Black male of being raised in an economically marginalized community by a single parent and headed by a matriarch. The narrative explained how the writer was able to persevere through his obstacles, despite enduring many unfavorable circumstances. This thesis was a self-discovery project and was a therapeutic intervention for the writer. Personal narratives were reviewed and each story expressed some kind of conflict or plight. Each of the narratives described an act of perseverance and resilience in order to find a solution which is evident daily in a social worker's career. The writer's experience of developing his own narrative with social worker influences were discussed too.
