Who am I and why am I here? My name is Miko and I am The New Statistic! What is the New statistic you may ask? well let me tell you. I have Beat the odds of what society calls a statistic. I come from a single mother; I have witnessed her go through many struggles in my young life. Many parents may not realize but their children are watching and what the child/ren witness can shape them into who they will become. Therefore, many of the dysfunction that I witnessed placed me in some of the statistical categories that I will discuss throughout this blog. One, is that I from a single mother and I am a single mother. I had my daughter at the age of 16, and as statistics show most teenage parents will become pregnant within 4 years of the first child. And another statistic is that I had my son 4 years later. As I began to mature, I made a promise to my children that I would do better. Beating the odds was not easy, and I went through so much to get to where I am today. I tried to break the cycle of being a single mother twice by getting married and trying the blending family thing. That was not in the plans that God had for my life. I had to find my happiness and my success, which, with my success it came from different areas of my life. It took time to get to where I am, but in time and growth came a beautiful butterfly. I had goals set for my life in which one of those goals was to have a bachelor’s degree before my daughter graduated from High school.
