Education is the only way I can think of to pull my family up out of poverty. Right now I am enrolled in graduate school full time — on top of operating the daycare. It's my dream that when I graduate, we can be self-sufficient again. Not only that, but that we can give back again as well. I want to be able to give my time and attention to people who are trying to change their circumstances. When you're down and out, it takes a lot of support to turn your life around.

The final day of training, after we had done all our technical learning, we gathered in a circle on the floor to reflect. We shared our achievements, personal goals, and praises for the group as a whole. It was incredibly moving for me to experience the genuine sense of accomplishment and pride we shared with each other. In my, albeit limited, experience, love of this kind is rare among co-workers. I never felt more fortunate to be a part of Cohort 2 than I did in that moment, and it reminded me that there has undoubtedly been a greater purpose to our work than our ability to send our programs off into a steady and unwavering future...
