HOMETOWN HERO : Local women building self-esteem in Palm Beach- WPEC

GREENACRES, Fla. (CBS12) — For nearly two decades this week’s ‘Hometown Hero’ has been guiding teenagers in Palm Beach County down a path to reach their full potential by helping them build their self-esteem.

“I grew up in a household with 14 siblings and lost my mom when I was 10,” Ho-Hing-King says, adding that losing her mother at a young age forced her to grow up quickly. “I really developed the skills of trying to take care of myself.”
