Okay, so this particular article is a little more personal- I was a teen mom ! No not like what you saw on TV, but the real deal. Eight years ago I became a whole mom, yes sis a whole mommiana out here ! Not once in my little mind that I would think I would become a mother & especially at that age- I was 14 when I found out I was pregnant. Whew Chile !! So let me give you a light run down on how this came about, because even majority of the people that knew & grew up with me don’t know how this happened to me. So I was a freshman right ? Young & impressionable…and high school was going to be my stomping grounds well my whole class was wreaking havoc on the school *flips hair*. But anyhow, I thought I was in love and was gone be in love forever, no ma’m ! My first “love” moved away & broke my little heart, and I was going through the motions liking this boy & that one but a whole lot of drama came with it and I went THROUGH IT !!! One day a boy came along & gave me a friendship and made me feel better about myself, skkkrrrrt issa trap ! I fell for it and laid my butt down..now mind you I was liking these boys but the boys didn’t like me or the upper class girls wasn’t letting them like me lol So long story short – I got pregant & here I am.
Now many statistics say that most girls that become pregnant while in high school between the ages 15-17 don’t graduate on time, But myself didn’t fall into that ! I graduated on time with honors & got accepted into college! I express that because you can do it too regardless what somebody has too say ! I am personally in the works of starting a non-profit for teen moms and other young mothers out here in the world that need help with just about anything !
I wish the girls luck as there is so much of it to go around !
