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.

Contact lenses so I can become a nurse

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
