I was at a point in my life that I wanted to make a difference in other people’s lives and I wanted to be the kind of mother my children could be proud of. The encouragement I received from staff and students was what helped me the most. They all had complete confidence in me, even when I didn’t have any in myself. It’s never too late and you’re never too old to do something you love, and that makes you happy. Now I spend my days at a career helping others and my nights being someone my family can be proud of. I wouldn’t change a thing, and all the hard work was worth it.
