I can say, I have faced many different types of hardships and no matter what anyone says it may not change how you feel at the moment but listen. I would say life is our testing grounds , bad, good, great and the worst can happen but you can get through it, you can smile again, the strength that you carry you must release to make a difference. Take one day at a time, focus on the good things and focus on making you a better you.

Hello! I am 30 years old, have 4 beautiful children and I am going to tell you a bit about me. I graduated in 2008 from Montessori High with a 2year old on my hip, I continued college, I ended up switching majors from Criminal Justice to Early childhood education because I fell in love with educating young children. I have been through a lot and honestly could never express all of it but I will tell you one that has happened recently. My late fiance passed away last October 28th 2018, I was 7 months pregnant. I had to wake my mom who was asleep on the couch at the time and we ran to the back room where she told me to call 911, they had us take him off the bed and perform CPR until helped arrived and then that’s when I was moved to the bathroom part of my room watching him get narcan after narcan. I saw them pump his stomach, there was so many people, they worked on him for 36 minutes and it felt like hours, when they declared him dead I fell apart. I watched him go into the ground on Nov 3rd and had our son month early on Nov. 4th 2018, I ended up making a decision that was very hard which was to give my son up. I am very blessed with the family that took him in and I am doing my best to fix me to be me again because let’s face it not very many have gone through something like this. I am still attending school, involved with my 3 children and visit my 4th child with his family. I am a fighter, a strong focused woman and I hope to change the world for the better.
What do you value most from your country?
I value many things but as of late this country I live in has made me disappointed.
Who influences you to go after your goals?
My father, my kids, friends, family and the kids I taught as a 3year old lead teacher.

Many times from giving out money to having friends and family stay with me. I have always helped my friends and family as best I can.

Most of the time, it doesnt get better. But we have to cope. For the better days. We have to stick around for the good times because sometimes they’re worth it

Tell us a little about you(your background and how was it like)?
I was born in arkadelphia Arkansas, but raised in greenville sc. My parents got divorced when I turned 3. My dad would pick up extra shifts when it was his time to watch us so that he wouldnt have to spend time with us, my mother was mentally checked out. Therefore I was raised by my grandma and my older sister. I had a rough childhood with very few good times. As a result I became very introverted and closed off. I started to suffer from depression and anxiety and an eating disorder which my parents ignored. This led to me trying to take my life multiple times and almost succeeding.

I’m not happy about it but I’m not upset about it. I know I have a lot of growing to do and I’m proud of the growth I have already made. The place I am currently in is very complicated but simple at thesame time. I’m kind of going with the flow but also trying to make decisions in my life that point me in the direction I wish to end up in.
