I was a very young teen mom. I was told that I would never amount to anything or be successful. After all, statistically, my chances were very low that I would not be able to complete-let alone successfully at that-a full course load of college . I struggled a lot but through hard work, dedication, and much sacrifice I was able to become a Aerospace Engineer and building software for NASA. Today, as a Engineer/ pilot I encourage other young girls to follow their dreams, goals, and passions.
