There is so much negativity around here with the gender strife and the reciprocal antipathy expressed towards each other that we tend to only see each other through a negative prism; colored by our focus on our respective deficits of character rather than our inherent strength, beauty and determination. This young sister is just starting out, but a light should be shined upon her triumph over poverty, hardship and despair. She is a testament to not surrendering or giving up. I'm sure that there are many others out there but I applaud her and I wish her continued luck and success!

I know huh! We all possess the power to effect our own destiny in spite of the impediments placed in our path. We just have to stay focused and "keep our eyes on the prize........ohhhh lord!"

She is a good role model to most people who thought they couldn't do it, or too lazy to do it. She struggled through some hectic situations, but still managed to stay strong and maintained motivation and determination to meet her goals and strive to success and victory, no matter what hardships she encountered....I'm so proud of her. :,)

And on a slightly different note, she should also serve as testament to some of the young brothers out there to the quality of fortitude and character that still exist in some of the young sisters. These young heads are inundated with negative narratives of young sisters as being lazy, and without drive and ambition, but she certainly is a living refutation of all of these negative depictions.

Exactly right! Blacks are associated with negative qualities, even those that others haven't encountered who could defeat such negative stereotypes. She is a subtype to majorities expectations, and is a great and memorable role model in my book. May God continue to bless her with such good fortune...(sighs of success) I love to see my fellow blacks succeed, and strive for success.:,) With this, hopefully, we will continue t progress.

I agree. There are many of them out there, male and female, taking care of business and staying focus despite walking into the winds of negative stereotypes. I just attended the graduation of a young man from the University of Souther California with a degree in Business that I dated his mother when he was just 7 years old, but I stayed in his life as a surrogate father after his mother and I parted romantic ways. I'm so proud of him and love seeing these young heads do well. We have to do more to set the table for the next generation.

Indeed, blacks need to get addressed, by doing so, we must teach th e next generation how how Ti be strong-willed, educated, and etc. with that, we possibly can have a full-black president. Furthermore, nice story, I hope the 7 year old boy continues to do well, and he will, thanks to your assistance.

This is the type of woman who would do well next to a White man. She probably will end up marrying a White guy for sure!

This is a beautiful thread by cogito and seeing young sisters and hopefully other young people get strength and perseverance from this admirable women achievements would be inspiring (;
