Welcome To #StudentParentSuccess Week!

I can finally reveal the big news I’ve been sitting on for a month: I was tapped to write an article for the September issue of ESSENCE magazine on — what else — student-parent success! See my emotional video HERE (viewed more than 1,000 times!) on why this meant so much to me.

This was a full circle moment for me, as I was a scared, unwed, broke college student with big dreams when I found out I was pregnant. Seeing the positive pregnancy test made me feel like I’d have to give up my dreams of moving to New York and having a fabulous Sex and the City lifestyle because I had been too busy living out Sex in the Dorms. Ha.

To celebrate my first ESSENCE magazine article,  I’ve dubbed August 17-21 Student Parent Success week!


This week we’ll be sharing tips and advice from student-parents and for student-parents about how to have the best year ever — from where to buy textbooks, to how to find a great babysitter, how to study with kids around you and more!

We’ve been writing about the student-parent life for quite a few years here and the archives are full of advice to get you going!

  1. Congrats on the article! I’m excited to follow #StudentParentSuccess as I’m now entering my third year of school in just a few short weeks, and it already feels so impossible and scary (once again). Every time I return to school I’m terrified, but this term is even scarier as I enter a new program and have to use a daycare for the first time. I know I’ll succeed and I love reading your helpful articles and inspiring stories.

  2. This is a decent post. This post gives genuinely quality data. I’m most likely going to investigate it. To an extraordinary degree unbelievably pleasing bits of knowledge are given here. Much appreciation to you to such an extent. Keep up the exhibits of attentiveness

  3. Nice and interesting post. Thank You! For sharing such a great article, I like to read your information you have mentioned in this article are helpful for me.

  4. Parents engaging in students’ academic life and getting updated can impact students’ performance and students get more involved in performing well. Conducting these events is very appreciatable. However, it has been found that students are getting low grades because of their workload and consider Malaysian Assignment Helper to manage all their tasks easily. These days are very common so they can help students to do well in their academics and get top grades.
