"My name is Niomie Ford. I am currently attending Orange Coast College.
3 things I am proud of...
1. I am proud of my persistence in getting what I want no matter what stands in my way; I will not give up.
2. I am proud to be a mom and give my all to raising my son financially, physically, and most important emotionally.
3. I am proud of the women/person I am and have become despite the obstacles that have and continue to stand in my way. I should be another statistic but I am not and I will rise above my past. I will never let the bad things that have happened in my past define who I am, however I will use them as strength to overcome......
Thank you for this opportunity and believing in me. It’s nice to have someone on my side when I feel alone :)"
