How has your life positively changed since you began your time at Maggie’s Place? I learned valuable life lessons about self- improvement, forgiveness, and that God has planned for me to do compassionate, caring work. Each person I met during my time at Maggie’s Place had a wonderful impact on my life. I learned something from each staff member and mother while I was there. If I hadn’t gone through that struggle in my life I wouldn’t be as strong as I am today! Maggie’s Place made a hard situation easier.

What inspired you to begin your current academic program? My goals in school and life are not just mine. I am determined to make the best life possible for my children. They saved my life and now I am going to repay the favor. Every experience good and bad, I believe, we can learn from. So, I know that if I keep learning and working hard at my goals I will accomplish them. I believe for every obstacle there is a solution; we just have to find the answer with hard work, creativity, and determination.

What inspired you to begin your current academic program? My inspiration is my dreams. When I dream I dream of being an independent woman who doesn’t ask anybody for help. I dream of being wealthy spiritually, physically, and financially. I dream of giving my son everything he needs and deserves. I dream of being able to pay for my son to be in a good school and take fun educational trips, and for him to never have to go a day without a meal. I dream of my son telling me he looks up to me and telling me he loves me for who I am. I dream of being that great employee that everybody loves to work with.
Area of Study: Paralegal
What inspired you to begin your current academic program? My son first inspired me to start in 2007. Now that I also have a daughter and I am a single mother of two children, they have both inspired me to finish my degree. I am doing this to better not only my life, but my children’s lives and their futures. I want to be able to always care for my children on my own and live a comfortable life.

How has your life positively changed since you began your time at Maggie’s Place?
My life positively changed since I began my time at Maggie’s Place. I was going through a rough time in my life with no support and feeling low. I went to Maggie’s Place to find that support and get a better perspective of things. Then, I finally realized that I am capable of anything when I put my mind to it.
What that said, being a mother of twin girls is no easy task; however, I have managed to push forward. I believe if I stay focus and take that leap of faith, I will be able to achieve my dreams. Also, I want to show my daughters if “”mama,”" can do it, then the world is at their little finger tips.
