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.
