Mother and Daughter Graduate Together
Vae @triggaVae started off as many young women before her. Vae got pregnant with her daughter her Junior year of high school and delivered her, her Senior year. If pictures are worth a thousand words, these tell the story of a young mom who decided what her future would be and a daughter who witnessed her mother work for everything she wanted.
Mother and Son Graduate Together
Sherri L. Davis from North Carolina also found herself pregnant at the tender age of 19. She made the difficult decision to put her education on hold and work to give her son all of the attention and support he needed. Her son was born with a genetic disorder known to attack the liver and cause other serious health problems.
“He didn’t start walking until he was 3 years old. I was told by his preschool director that he would probably never talk, and all he would do is utter groans and moan,”Davis said
However, they started attending Johnson C. Smith University together and have now graduated together.
“Through it all…I would do it all over again, to experience this moment right here. So if you wanna know why I’m so amped about graduation….Look at what the Lord has brought us through,” Davis Said
