My name is Latacha Ramos and I am one of the recipients of the Central Arkansas Development Council’s Single Parent Scholarship. Being a single mother of two girls, Mya is 14 years old and Claire is 5 years old, is a great privilege but I found myself struggling to pay the bills and give them the things that every parent wants their child to have. I knew that the only way I would ever be able to better my life and the lives of my girls was to go back to school and earn my degree.
