My name is Zakia Hillard. I presently have three of my children in college attending full time. My children have been through so much and they are so supportive of me during the times when I'm sick or just tired because of documented disabilities.
My purpose at my age is to inspire the young single women and mothers I volunteer with, to be the best that they can be in spite of their circumstances. I learned a long time ago, I couldn't walk this life alone. Although I'm a single mother, I can't raise my children alone. I believe with all my heart "....it takes a village to raise a child". If I can make it this far with the help and support of community, so can they.
I am very interested in learning more about the criminal justice system as it relates to juveniles. I believe there are too many children in the judicial system who could have been help before going to jail or even before being put into foster care. I want to be a part of the change in families of the less fortunate. I volunteer with people in the community and help connect people to resources they would not otherwise know about because of falling through the cracks of our society. I want to figure out how to combat the social issues of our children and families in general. What do we do help heal the many cases of PTSD in the homes in the United States? I also volunteer with an organization who works towards ending racial disparity in our school systems. I would like to give someone a hand up so they will not be dependant on the welfare system.
Thank you so much for your time and thank you for reading
