I’m a single mom of 4 and am 31 years old. I work as the assistant manager at a retail shoe store. I have been with the company for 7 years. Everything I do is for my children. My oldest daughter is 14 and goes to the Chicago Agricultural high school, and the others are 12, 10 and 5 and are all in elementary school. They are all excellent students! I grew up in Chicago. I have been raising children on my own for their whole lives. My goal is to be able to support my family and be happy. I would like us to be able to live comfortably without worries and stresses every week to have our basic needs met. I want my kids to be able to finish high school -to go above and beyond.

My kids never have new clothes - I can’t afford it. It brings their self-esteem down because they have holes in their pants and they get bullied. More
