I am a single mom raising 2 daughters. I left my husband when my girls were 1 & 5 due to abuse and have not looked back. I have worked hard to bring my girls up with no child support. I have always taught them that no matter how hard it was for us there were those out there who suffered more. I have always led by example by getting involved in community service and working to promote issues. Currently I am working two minimum wage part time jobs and going to school FT. I am working towards my degree in Education. I want to show my girls that I to believe what I taught them all these years. Education is the most important thing you can arm yourself with. I preached this but having dropped out and obtaining my my G.E.D at 16 I was not the role model I wanted them to follow.
