Andrea Rivas-Reyes Success Story
A life changing experience
When I came to Borromeo I was 19 with a barely 2 months old, baby girl. I had yet to graduate high school for more reasons than just being a young mother. Days after moving into the house I registered for school and registered my daughter to daycare. At first old habits were kicking my butt and I would miss school but eventually with the help of Ms. Darlene I started going to school everyday. Then the day of graduation came and I was happy to finally graduate from high school(at the age of 20 btw) and to cross that off my life goals. Without the support from Borromeo I would not have graduated from high school. I learned that with dedication and support I can accomplish my goals and hopefully be an inspiration to my daughter and other young moms. I hope to continue college next fall and one day cross that graduation off my list. I owe a lot to Borromeo Housing Inc specially to Ms Darlene and I hope to one day be a part of this organization from the other end.
