Tell us about yourself and your family:
I am a newly single mom. I was in an abusive relationship and left.
My daughter is 22 months old and the light of my world. She’s allergic to chocolate, and may possibly have asthma.
I am 23 years old, and a hairstylist. I am in school to own my own salon one day!
What were your biggest concerns when you first found out you were pregnant? How did you handle it?
My biggest concern was how could I afford to take care of such a small human?
I got a job, as did her father. he travels for work renovating tmobiles.
What kinds of things do you do to treat yourself, for fun and to stay relaxed?
I treat myself to a new hair color, and get my nails done.
Mama has to be pampered too!
What are your favorite things about being a mom?
I love watching my daughter grow and learn. I love her faces when she discovers she can do something new.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? If you didn’t have any obstacles, what dream would you pursue?
In 5 years I see myself in my own salon just making a good life for my daughter and I.
If I could pursue a dream it would to be a platform artist… basically the BEST hair stylist are this.
What advice would you give to other young girls who just found out they’re pregnant or recently became a mom?
Don’t give up, sleep when you can, take the help.
No matter what anybody says, you can do it.
