You See Me Here, Right?

Nobody at my college knew that I was in the shelter, and once people started finding out, they were like, oh my gosh, Tami, you’re in a shelter? Oh my gosh, you’re a mother? I’m the only parent in my program at Northeastern. Only parent. And they like, look at me differently ‘cause of that. Oh, you’re a mom? I didn’t know you have a kid. I have a son, not a kid. I hate that. You’re in a shelter? Oh my gosh, I feel so bad for you. Don’t feel bad for me. I’m doing really fine. You see me here, right? In college? Don’t feel bad.
