I’m 36 years old and don’t have any kids.  I had a great childhood.  But I started doing cocaine when I was 19 and have had an addiction ever since.  I didn’t start getting into trouble until 2013.  I was put on probation and, of course, was still in my addiction, and now I violated and I’m in here in jail for 4 years.  Addiction makes me feel trapped.  I’ve done things I never thought I would do.  Since I’ve been incarcerated, I’ve done 2 programs that are going to change my life!  2nd Chances is a Dog Training Program that has taught me a great skill – training dogs.  I Love animals and I’ve always wanted to be a veterinarian. But I’ve had so much fun training these beautiful dogs that I want to make it a career.  DreamWeave is another wonderful program that has given me a crafting skill, and it has made me bring all my dreams out of me that I didn’t think I had.  It makes me believe that I’m like the Little Engine That Could – “I THINK I CAN!”  And I know I will!  So with every purse I make it makes me feel good that I’ve made someone very happy.  So thank you for supporting my dreams.
