''I would like to say Thank You because the Rockford Promise helped prevent me going to the service right after high school. Instead, I will be starting my studies first which is what I wanted to do. I am very thankful for the Rockford Promise because I will be able to show my younger siblings why they should do really well in school. I would like to be a positive role model for teenage moms living in poverty and subsidized housing that if you believe in yourself you can achieve anything.''
