My hero is my mama. She started her life at a very young age when she got pregnant with my older sister Mickellia, at 17 years old. When my grandparents found out they kicked her out of the house and she had to live on her own going to work full time to pay for us kids and finishing her high school career as well. What my mom has gone through to be able to give us kids everything we wanted my mom had to work three jobs at one point and still have enough money to pay all the bills. Yes my mom had some really rough, stressful years of trying to get on her feet but she did it! My mom showed me what a real, strong, independent women should look like. I look up to my mom for everything. I want to be just like my mom when I get older, well besides having a child at a young age.
