    What a truly inspirational young lady!!! Sometimes things in life happen, such as an unexpected pregnancy. Nevertheless, just like this young lady has demonstrated, this does not mean we have to give up. Make a choice to keep fighting for what you want, even if you have to fight a little harder.

    I think this is so awesome!! I was in college while I was pregnant, and did my finals in my third trimester, with severe morning sickness and pulled muscles all over my body from violently getting sick, a back brace for my scoliosis, and WHILE I moved into my first apartment! Not to mention my (ex) boyfriend and I were getting into huge horrible fights constantly at the time. I cannot believe I was able to push through and not only finish my finals but get As on both and in both classes! I have to remember that now, because between work and being a single mom sometimes I think I dont have enough time or energy for school. But if this woman was able to do this, and I, too, was able to push through school during my pregnancy I know I can do it now!! Thanks for the inspiration Luz!

    Sometimes it just takes little reminders here and there to show us how capable we truly are! Keep fighting the good fight and know you can make it through anything you set your mind to! 🙂
