Amillia that was an awesome testimony. Have you ever thought about helping young people who are going through some of the same things?

All I know is can't nobody throw my testimony in my face bc it made me who I am.

I dropped out of high school at 15 to start working and got into a bunch of trouble between 15 to 20. I was hustling, stealing, dealing, in and out of jail all the time. At 20 my little brother was dying from cancer and he told me that I needed to get my act together. He said I was killing our mom and he hated me for it, but he loved me more and made me promise that I would do better. It was a process but I decided to go and get my GED a few months after he passed away.

Then I realized after I got it that I can't do nothing with a GED, so I went back to hustling. My older sister and I got into it because I promised everyone that I would do better. She said if I stop she would help me, but if I kept on they were all done with me, real talk. She said she would go to CUNY enrollment with me and pay for my first year but I had to promise that I would stop dealing forever. At 22, I started college and struggled through every single day. Going the straight path was not easy at all, because I still had friends in the game and I felt so lonely for 4 years. But the good thing about CUNY instead of traditional college was that all types of people went there and I didn't feel like I was the only one who was trying to get away from something.

But anyway, last year I graduated cum laude with a B.S. in computer science, and I started my first real job in September. I can declare with victory that life is so much better...I have a different group of friends, I'm close to my family again, and I finally have something that no one can take from me. God is good!



Yyaaassss girl yaaassss!!

I LOVED to read that!!!

If thats how you feel do you. I know im just getting started and that I'm nowhere near the mountaintop. I give mine bc even though I'm not where I want to be, i have to remind myself that i've come a long way and not to beat myself up for not being there yet

At 16 I got raped by a neighbor,had my oldest afew weeks before my 17th birthday.I went through hell with family & professionals who didn't think that I could handle raising him mentally.At 19 I decided to have my 2nd and last child partly because I didn't like not having a choice with my first child... Was engaged to be married,but realized that I was not ready for that journey at 19... It's funny,because I had no problem accepting the weight of being a parent....I put a lot of things on hold to raise my sons,and I still ended up getting married a few years later.Now I'm the professional talking with individuals about life changing decisions...I draw on my own life events to highlight the fact that some of life's greatest blessings come from our darkest times...
