Student Spotlight: Sabrina

Student Spotlight


My name is Sabrina, and I am a single mother of two children. I am in the process of restarting my life to provide for my children and myself. I have been through many traumatic events that have shaped me into the person I am today. They have also brought me here, and I am more thankful.

At a young age, I had been introduced to sex, drugs, and other traumatic experiences that have taken a toll on my life. As a teenager, I became the main provider for three younger kids in the household. My mother was always working at least three jobs to support us. She was a single mother of four, and my father had been in and out of the picture. Due to the absence of both my mother and father, I resorted to boys for attention. I had also gotten into many fights, and I started using drugs. At 14 years old, I had an abortion that took a piece out of me, impacting me today. Then I became pregnant again at the age of 16. Going to school became difficult, and I was on bed rest the last months of my pregnancy, so I decided to drop out.

“…my life has encountered so many obstacles. As a result, I have become stronger and able to provide for my family. ”

When I turned 18, I became an exotic dancer because my logic saw that it was a way of making fast money. I had to move out and struggled financially. I bounced from being a dancer to getting my CNA (Certified Nursing Aide) license and started working with the elderly. I also acquired my HHA soon after working in-home health care. I changed my perspective of both my internal values and my external environment. It became a very positive influence in my life, and I enjoyed it for five years. I had my son at age 26. Taking care of him was exceedingly challenging from the time he was born. My family and I recently found out he has autism which has given him a very challenging mental and physical state.

In conclusion, my life has encountered so many obstacles. As a result, I have become stronger and able to provide for my family. My life has not been easy, but I have made it through 100% of my worst days so far.

My goal after gaining my HSE is to further my education in the medical field. I want to be successful, take care of my family, and give my son any extra assistance.
