A Graduate Rejoices Over Her Achievements — Delilah’s Reflections
Becoming a graduate is a great achievement for many people.
However, for young adult, Brittney, there were many obstacles in her way, yet she never let anything get in the way of her aspirations.
I am 23 years old and a single mom to an almost 1-year-old beautiful girl named Norah. She has inspired me so much; I am a completely different person than I was before. I'm back in school, and graduating with three different degrees and a CNA at the end of the month. I have a 4.0 GPA and I'm on the Dean's List. I work full time, go to classes at night, plus raising my little girl.
I knew I could accomplish anything because my mom did the same thing when I was a little girl. She has also been an amazing inspiration to my little family. I wouldn't be half the woman I am without my Norah Jean Marie. I hope that sharing my story with other girls in the same position as I am, will inspire and show them that nothing is impossible!
I can't imagine what it's going to feel like when I walk on graduation day knowing I have those diplomas for us to better our life together. Nothing would mean more to me than to shout over the mountain tops that "I DID IT!" I feel like I can conquer the world, and all because of the little girl that encompasses mine.
