My road in life has been direct.
Getting pregnant in high school. Missed a lot of school and dropped down a bit but still graduated in the top 10 percent as an Honor Graduate and Texas Scholar.
I went to a private University. It was expensive. My family were not rich. I thought I would have to drop out at one point to find full time employment, But God worked it all out for me.
I struggled with a History class. I should have failed but I was determined and met with the teacher, completed extra credit, and studied harder.
After graduating with my Bachelor's Degree, I could not find a job in my field. I was left to work as a sales associate.
I worked for CPS, which was not what I thought it was going to be. It was some of the most stressful days of my life.
When I could not take CPS anymore, I found my dream job.

The Noise I Shed

From Peers:

"That I would not be good at what I do because I have never been through what most of these youth have faced and won't be able to relate to them. They said I was too nice and the kids would run all over me."
