Cheyenne Hernandez's curator insight, March 23, 2016 1:41 PM

Shawnee Ormsby-Ryder was pregnant at such a young age. She was 17 when she gave birth to her baby, but surprisingly, Shawnee took a crazy turn. Instead of Shawnee taking a turn for the worse, her life seemed so much better than before. She explained how she never did well in school before hand, but once she had her baby, she felt that her education was the most important thing. She worked hard during school, as well as being a mother and decided she would attend college to persue a careeer in nursing. She proved many wrong by doing what was best for not only her baby, but also for herself. 

 

I really think that Shawnee has done an amazing job. For her to turn her life around in the right direction, is unbelieveable. Most stories you read like this are known to have the mothers go off of the deep end, and end up dropping out school. Shawnee has a lot to be proud of, and she is making her baby very proud. This story is very inspirtational, and shows that even if you're a teenage mother, you still have enough time to balance an education for your future.
