Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    You won't amount to anything.

  • How I responded:

    In high school in my last year at the age of 17, I became pregnant. No one expected that I would carry on and attend university, but I did. I was determined to provide an environment for my daughter that I did not have growing up, and was determined to beat the stereotypes of a young, black teen mother. It was difficult juggling work, school, and my duties as a mother but those moments helped define who I am today.

Experiences and challenges that shaped me

  • My parents had not saved for my education, thus I had to borrow a government loan. I also obtained a part time job to help with the costs of travel, etc. This taught me responsibility and more importantly, to be independent.
