Please describe any unique challenges that have positively impacted your life.
Soon after I started my online degree my partner at the time got into some trouble with the law and ended up getting deported. This left me a single mother of 3 children, a 9 yr old boy, 2 year old daughter and 9 month old daughter. When the pandemic hit, I found myself pregnant by an unfortunate situation, but out of that pregnancy I was blessed with my 4th child, my last baby Luna. I was now a single mother of 4 and caring for my parents who lost their jobs due to COVID. If anything, these challenges taught me was that even if everything seems to be going wrong or against you, there is always a brighter side ahead in the road. And, these challenges only make you stronger.
