“I dropped out of high school at the age of 14 as I was pregnant with a little boy. At 16, I first learned about MUA through my friend, who was preparing for her High School Equivalency through MUA’s program. I enrolled in the classes as my mother could watch my baby. I was able to change my schedule to work nights and weekends and also enrolled in the basic computer class. My son, now age 2, attends MUA’s child care and is making strides in mastering his colors, numbers, and letters in both English and Spanish. I hope to get my High School Equivalency this year and I want to enroll in Roxbury Community College (RCC) to study nursing.”
