This iReport is part of an assignment:
In praise of “other mothers”
Adopted by single mom
She was a strong woman and loved to teach. Her students and colleagues tell me how much she meant to them and how much she has helped them out and help to increase and improve Penn State Harrisburg. She was never afraid to speak her mind and help others when they were being mistreated.
She passed away when I was 21, in 2010 from cancer. Even though is no long with me in person, I know her spirit is still with me and I she will always be my role model. Even though she wasn't my birth mother, she will be the first mom I ever had because she raised me to be the woman I am today.
