Rise Momma: How have you felt challenged to RISE as a mother and entrepreneur?
A’darah: Being a teenage mom, and a statistic, I knew I had to rise to the occasion. I wanted to show the generation above me, and below me, that we don't have to be failures because of our choices.
Having the odds stacked against me before I even gave birth, I knew I had to devise a plan, that consisted of me never quitting; no matter what.
Starting out with finishing my senior year of night school within two-months, to landing a job at 8-weeks pregnant, and ultimately going into labor while working, I knew that whatever was ahead of me, wasn't necessarily going to be easier, but wasn't going to be the hardest thing I had to go through.
