Break Poverty by going for your dreams
Break Poverty by going for your dreams: Ending Poverty (1/2)

I am a strong Black Youth .

Single parent of 3 kids.

Everyday I wake up I have to ask God for strength . 

To give me wisdom and understanding how to deal with people each day. 

Get my kids ready for school then off to my job which is self employment and volunteerism .  Just to be alive I feel so bless. 

Dispite my challenges I'm still optimistic about the future.

Never give up on your dreams it alone can break proverty.

Hello Denise,
Welcome to World Pulse, and congratulations on your first post. I like how in your optimism and dependence on God, in your refusing to give up and pushing on in spite of challenges, in taking on the joy and challenge of parenting as a single mum without complaining or self doubt, you are building resilience and strength, in yourself and your children. Wisdom to live is a great wealth too, and your story reveals that you possess that in good measure, which you are passing on to you lovelies as they'll need it to chart new pathways in a changing world.
Good on you girl:)
Stay anchored in God's grace.

Meanwhile, you've got this. I love your optimism. Tough times never last, but tough people surely do. Keep remaining strong and giving back through volunteerism. Thank you for reminding us that the future is bright and we must never give up.

We would love to read more from you.
