“I know where I’m supposed to be.”
Carole Williams wasn’t at all sure at first that she wanted to be part of this story.
“I didn't recognize that I was living in poverty until you called and said, ‘Oh, we're doing a story on that,’ and I’m like, ‘Oh, you are, so what’d you call me for?’”
After saying this, Williams offers up a big congenial laugh.
