About Me: 

I live in a city I Call, The For Gotten City. I did not realize half of my life living here, their was know real help until I became homeless with my son. When I was seeking help for shelter, and a job there was know one their to help. With more people then there are resources I found myself alone trying to find ways to help others and hearing there stories instead of fallen captive to mine. Getting phone numbers every time I saw a need was a habit with me. what could I do was a constant thought in my mind, but something deep within me new I would not always be in a place of poverty. Even though my body was trap in poverty my mind was not. I would take others phone numbers because I knew one day I could help.
I am a 41 year old full-time college student, and mother I hope to graduate soon. I live with a severe learning disability, so it has taking me much longer then the average to graduate, but I just can't give up, to many are needing help in this
For Gotten City.

My Passions: 
Helping families in need and children
My Challenges: 
Graduating with a Learning Disability
My Vision for the Future: 
To give until the end
My Areas of Expertise: 
Counselling youth
