How has TLM positively impacted your life? - Talesa Howell
My name is Talesa Howell and I am the lead web designer for the Indiana Department of Correction.
My journey, in part, is the product of what The Last Mile program can accomplish. Participating in The Last Mile during my incarceration provided me with a vision of success, the motivation to keep striving to take the next right step, and the ability to think outside the box of what society has labeled me. Incarceration was a chapter in my life, not the book I intend to write. TLM helped me realize that my mistakes do not define me: I define who I want to be, and it is within my power to change that narrative.
