“I will never forget being 15 years old, pregnant with India (maybe 6/7 months)
“I will never forget being 15 years old, pregnant with India (maybe 6/7 months) and shopping at T.J. Maxx with my mom. As we are shopping, I hear someone laughing and gossiping behind me. When I turn around, the store cashier was literally pointing at me saying, ‘OMG! How old are you?!’ while laughing with his co-worker. My Mom snapped of course, but what I remember most from that moment was how ashamed and defeated I felt. When I got to the parking lot, my mama told me I better NOT walk around with shame… that people have no idea who I or India will become. Less than 2% of teen parents earn a college degree before 30. TWO! While this isn’t my first degree, this one was the most important, because it was based off of a dream I’ve had for me and that little baby I was carrying. To all of the teen parents, single parents, married parents that haven’t quite reached their goals, I AM ROOTING FOR YOU! You CAN! Just get out here and do it!”
