I am a single parent of five amazing kids ages 14-4 years of age. Our family strives for academic success and independence. I am currently a 5th year PhD student studying interfacial adhesion. Being a single parent has not deterred my studies but has brought me closer to my children and I believe has made me a better mother. We love to watch documentaries together and of course experiment with various household items. We couldn't image not having one another. Although we get harassed for being such a large family, we believe that we are meant to be and with the support of one another we will all have advanced degrees because our children are our future.
