Cyntoia Brown – ‘Those simple pleasures that people take for granted are what I looked forward to when I sat in prison dreaming of freedom’
Former lifer, Cyntoia Brown, who was released from prison this month after celebrities advocated on her behalf, said that after 15 years behind bars she’s enjoying manicures, cooking and choosing how to spend her time — things she used to only dream of doing.
“I am loving every single thing about being in my own home,” said the 31-year-old Tennessee woman who was sentenced to life in prison for murdering a man when she was 16.
“Being able to cook for myself and decide how I want to spend my day feels amazing,” she said in an exclusive statement to NBC News. “Those simple pleasures that people take for granted are what I looked forward to when I sat in prison dreaming of freedom.” Related Articles:
