Read Akilah’s story:
I dropped out of high school when I had my first child. The father didn’t stick around so I had to take care of my child by myself.
I worked in every type of job just so I could provide. I worked at produce places inside of deep freezers, and I cleaned toilets.
All of those jobs never lasted more than 5-6 months. It was frustrating, especially because I had to depend on the government.
I had $300 a month to travel back and forth with 3 kids. My parents died when I was young so I didn’t have anyone to fall back on.See Also
One day, I decided that enough is enough. It took me a lot of courage to go back to high school.
I was embarrassed but my child kept me focused and motivated. It’s amazing how much my life has changed since I decided to take that extra step and get my education.
I’m getting my life together and providing for my kids. I own a 5 bedroom house, my kids are doing well in school, and I’m healthy.”
