My first connection to the Royal Wedding: Doria Ragland Inside Saint George’s Chapel,Read More →

There must have been a time in your life, when you had a conversation with someone about a goal you would like to achieve, that person looked at you and told you that this was not going to happen and gave you some reasons why he or she  believes that you can’t do it. Often, this reason is simply based on assumptions, common perceptions or stereotypes. Here you are now, back to square one, doubting yourself, because, what if this person is right?

Wondering why I am dedicating my time to helping you? The idea of having a platform dedicated to single moms came to me back in December 2015. At the time, I was going to school full time, taking as many as six classes a semester, doing all I can to make sure I graduate the following semester. My goal was to graduate by Spring 2016 before my son starts Pre-K in Fall 2016 at 4 years old. I wanted to establish a very good foundation for him when he starts school.
