    Motivation for us all. I like the part about being a certain age and having achieved your goal or being at that certain age and not having achieved you goal. Time will pass either way. I might as well be or have what it is I want out of life.

  3. Wonderful story!

    This reminds me of one of my classmates at Spelman. We were both science majors, and she was pre-med. While in chemistry class, I asked her what was she going to do that afternoon, and she said, “Play with my little girl before I study.” I thought she was playing, but she was serious. Here was this 19 year-old woman with a 3.6 GPA, majoring in chemistry, with a 3 year-old daughter. From that moment on, I didn’t complain in class because I thought if she could do it, I could do it. Well, she graduated from medical school this past May.

  4. Fabulous! Sharing…

    I am a former unwed teen mom of two who went on alone to college and then law school and ran my own law firm for 20 years after that. I have become so tired of nothing but the negative protrayals of teen moms and their alleged disaterous lives, that I have recently started writing a book. Each chapter profiles a teen mom that has gone on the succeed in medical school, law school, graduate school and life in general. If anyone is interested in being interviewed for the book, please contact me at my email address: I would be thrilled to talk with you and hear the details of your unique story. Thanks, Janet Conroy
