It is time to stand up for teen parents

Yesterday I read an article that devastated me.

Less than half of teen parents graduate from high school.
Less than 2% earn a college degree before the age of 30

I got pregnant at the age of 14 and gave birth at the age of 15. I graduated on time with my class with 6 scholarships that I worked my butt off for. Shortly after I turn 30 I will have three college degrees. I want to bring these statistics up and be a role model for those who think they cannot do it. I am starting from scratch but mark my words I will make a difference in someones life.
