LET’S GET STARTED

"I want to get my education for my daughters, so that we can have a better life. My daughters have inspired me simply by growing up. I’ve noticed how things aren’t so easy when you’re a single parent, and I want to show them that just because their mommy is raising them alone doesn’t mean she has to stop everything when something gets in her way."

- Meagan, Mississippi
