Please share a bit of your story:

I’m a single mom of an amazing 7 year old son. I’m in the process of applying to PhD programs and trying to figure out how to balance work, school and single motherhood.

What/who is your inspiration?

My son is my biggest inspiration. He is the reason I decided to pursue the PhD program.

How has your story defined or not defined who you are today?

My story as a single mom has shaped how I see the world and how passionate I am about helping others.

Why should your story be selected to be featured on our blog?

Because of social media I think people have only seen one side of who I am as a single mom. I would love to show that some days I have hard days.

What encouraging words would you give to someone who shares a similar story?

Proverbs 3:5. Everything happens for a reason and I believe there is a season for everything. The beautiful part is that every season comes to an end and something new and beautiful can grow.
