I have been criticized on my facebook for telling a girl who is pregnant to use the single mom story in essays. I also told her to use the first person in her family to go to college for essays, she is a a teen trying to care for her daughter to be, and to say she is fluent in two languages and can pass the AP exam.
some people don't get that she is what we want as the example of how to get out of the cycle of poverty. And it fucking pisses me off.
I am so proud of this girl. Her kid is due in July, but she already has 4 college credits from going to classes to get the credit. This is so what we should be pushing.
