Being a woman and a mother, you have many characteristics such as being strong, independent, nurture and just basically get the job done for yourself and your family. My day as a mother starts very early and consist of taking care of duties around the house such as laundry, making sure the kids get to school on time. Also, I have to make sure I’m ready and prepared for work since I am a home aide nurse. So basically, I am a mother 24/7 so my job is never done as most parents know. Making sure everybody is happy is a blessing because I know I’m doing my job good and I know my kids are fine. Nowadays minorities are stereotyped because of the reality shows on tv. Many people fail to realize there are still good humbled women in this world. There are women with regular 9-5 jobs. Women that have high morals and don’t seek attention or fame. Even though we are shown to be aggressive on tv and social media these days, it is a very small percentage of the community. However, it is used to generalize all of us. As a mother, I always try to teach my daughter good values. I often encourage her to trust her gut, be confident and go after her dreams. My advice for young women would be to always stick with your morals and never let anyone or anything discourage you. Asking for help does not make you less of a woman or parent so don’t be headstrong about it.
