Teenage pregnancy is and has always been a major issue in today's society. Although everyone's first impression of a teen parent is that they were just some children being grown, but there is some light to this situation. It may not be every teen parent's position, but there are a few who feel the same as I do. To the world a pregnant teen or a teen with a baby is just another statistic. Society assumes it is just another girl who is going to drop out of school and not do anything with her life or for her child. I refuse to be another statistic or adhere to society’s false assumption. Therefore, I am going to finish school and do what I have to do, so I can do what I want to do for me and my son. Getting pregnant as a teen means there are more responsibilities and that it is not “all about me” anymore, it is about the baby. I have to work harder to achieve my goals and stay focused on finishing school and not focused on pleasing teenage desire. I have to learn from my mistakes or I could mistakenly go through them repetitively. I am an advocate for teen moms because I know the struggle and the hardships. I want them to know that our circumstances do not define who we really are. The mistakes that we have made will not hold us back from being all that we want to be. I have established a Non-Profit Organization called Joshua's Closet International because I see other teen parents with no support group and no helping hand. I want to give that assistance and be that support group by providing encouragement, service, and necessities that improve the life of teenage parents and their children. As a parent I am different and as a teen parent I am now trying to make a difference!
