I have 3 children. My daughter who is 22 found low-income housing in Iowa and lives there; my other kids are 19 and 16 year old boys and live with me here in Chicago. Neither of them is working. Through the CARA program, I worked for the CTA cleaning trains. I completed my whole 9 month internship but then, unfortunately they couldn’t hire me as planned because it was during a time when they were making major cuts. I started back to school in 2010. After being out of school for a long time, I finally went back to school for nursing.

I do have glasses but because I have astigmatism everything's blurry. If I had contacts I would be able to see for school and work and for driving. More
