My father nicknamed me Crusader Rabbit when I was a child because I have always tried to helping people. I am a widowed mother who has survived a stroke, domestic violence, and two car accidents. I was a stay at home mom and I do not have enough tax credits for disability yet SSI would not be enough to take care of my family. I make $60 a month over the income limit for SNAP benefits. I understand other people’s pain and their frustrations. Many years of struggling though set backs and living in poverty have reinforced my drive to not only bring my family but as many others that I can help to rise above poverty.

The steps I have taken already towards my life’s goal are having a real estate sales license, learning how to remodel homes, and now I am studying project management. I will start a non-profit organization within the next five years that will help working families and individuals in need that do not otherwise qualify for government assistance. The organization will offer temporary housing, and collaborate with community services to offer resources such as classes in personal finances, resume building, and computer access for learning and job searches. I am hoping to partner with Habitat for Humanity and Job Corps to expand my dream nationwide. I wish to inspire others not to give up, to reach their potential and teach others how to make a difference in their lives and others.
