I paid (still am) a significant amount of money for my education
I worked my ass off to put myself through college
I want to contribute to my family financially
I want to contribute to my daughters education as well as her future financially
I want my daughter to know that you don’t have to choose between your dreams
I want my daughter to know that you can have a successful career and be a great mother
I want my daughter to know what hard work looks like
I want my daughter to not give in to female stereotypes
I want to be able to take care of myself and my daughter no matter what the future holds
I want my daughter to understand what sacrifices are, prioritizing means, all while not giving up.
I want her to see that sometimes life is hard, not fair, and overwhelmingly stressful, but that it takes hard work, determination and patience to push forward
I want to be her role model. I want her to take the best parts of me and become an even greater woman than I could ever be.
