When I was growing up, things seemed less complicated. My mother always worked and she had help raising me. I grew up in a house with love ones. I did not grow up around my father, but he was in my life. I had much support from my grandparents, aunts, and uncles. But I think I became a pretty decent woman, I started working in the 8th grade when I was 14 years old. My first job was at Kmart.

My children are now fourteen, eleven and one. And I’m a single mother, and it’s has its times, but its well worth the experience.

Everything is different in the world these days. Jobs are hard to come by. You have to have some type of experience, skills or degree to even be consider for any position. When I was young, getting a job was easy. I try my best to tell my son, which is now 14 that you need to go to school, read a lot, and go to college. It’s not easy in this world. He knows that I’m here to support him one hundred percent in everything he does. I want the best for my children. I don’t want them to struggle or depend on no one. And if it takes every ounce in me, I will make sure my children will grow up to very independent and strong human beings with dreams and beliefs.
