FOUNDER & STORY

"A child raising a child", I remember hearing that a lot and feeling the judgement when people would ask my age and my daughters, I'd answer with hesitation as they quickly did the math. 

Yes, I had my daughter at sixteen. No, statistics didn't win. But society did for a little because the stigma and perception from others really did effect me. I've fought through depression, forced a smile on my darkest day, was timid to ask questions or for help, and had been backed into a corner out of fear of judgement.

 

But that’s done and over! I've taken power in the fact that being a younger mother and single mother doesn’t make me less or that it means I can't accomplish things.

CO-FOUNDER & STORY

Getting pregnant at a time in my life when I wasn’t ready and when I was in such an unstable relationship was one of the hardest challenges I had faced. Facing constant ridicule from my own family and friends because I was the girl that always said I’d never have kids,I made the best of the situation I was in and continued to move through life.

A few months after giving birth to my beautiful daughter I was hit with the darkest depression I’d ever known. I spent months completely ignoring everything around me and hyper focused all my energy and attention into caring for my daughter. I’d look at myself in the mirror and break down because I had no idea who I was looking at.
