I was born in my grandmother’s house in Meridian, MS and raised in Tallahassee, FL. My mother taught me to make a sweet potato pie when I was 17 with a one-year-old daughter. I did not make another for 12 years. After years of becoming weary with jumping hurdles and overcoming stigmas of a young, single mother, I wanted to be happy being ME.

When I thought about launching a small business from this hobby, I began to understand that the hurdles I’d jumped in other parts of life, had really prepared me for this endeavor. The more I worked, the more setbacks (learning curves) I faced. Slowly, I’ve begun to realize. . .

It’s about more than pitravia baby 1996e.

More than 50% of teen mothers never graduate from school and less than 2% of teen moms earn a college degree before age 30.

 

My Story Was Different

After graduating James S. Rickards High School as class president in 1998, I went on to earn a B.A. in English (2002) and a Master’s in Public Administration (2005) from Florida State University.

The challenges I faced along the way made me realize that young mothers simply give out in the pursuit of higher education and enterprise that could lead to more stable lives. In other words—it can be too hard to

jugjess workgle motherhood, a school schedule and support a household spiritually, physically, emotionally and financially.

A Piece of the Solution

My pies are a part of the solution. Not the dessert itself, but the idea of rising above our circumstances by using  our challenges as the chairs we stand on to reach our highest heights.
