  • I did graduated high school and before attending college I was able to get a job to support my daughter.

  • I look back now to all the people who told me “No” and smile in content on how I proved them wrong. Even though I had to grow up at an early age and set my teen life apart, and found out what it feels to be a full time mom with a full time job, I am proud of all my accomplishments that I have done. If I ever heard the word “No” again, I’m just going to think back to my experiences and remember that I can achieve anything I want. That “No” is not an option for me, but the motivation to better myself.
