Education for a struggling single mother
Organized by: Shala Wallace
I am a single mother of 4, and for the last 3 years since the birth of son I have run out of financial aid to finish my bachelor's degree, I walked accross the stage with two classes to finishand it has been a sacrifice that I can no longer sacrifice. I want to set an example for my children and the young adults around me that it is possible to succeed in having a higher education and being a single parent, if that comes first. I have been trying to do this on my own but I have hit a financial brick wall. My kids have always come first and I am willing to be without, but when I am so close why should I. I made the sacrifice to be away from them for 4 long years to even get to where I am today. I never saw myself being in this situation. I plan on going back to school to complete my master's degree. With the help of these funds I will be able to complete one of my major goals.
