Jordan Brown is the youngest of three high-achieving daughters of a hard-working single mother from Jamaica.

Last month Jordan set off to attend her dream school, Georgetown University. Before she left Atlanta, though, she and her mother, Monica carved out some time in the StoryCorps Atlanta booth to talk about life at the threshold of this big life change … not only for Jordan, but for her mother, too. 

This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps Booth.
