My story is the quintessential American Story. My journey is your journey.
I was born and raised in Arkansas, the youngest of four girls raised by a single parent. My mom worked two or three jobs to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. I remember her always being tired, so tired. But even three jobs were not enough to afford health insurance, so my mother lived in constant fear, knowing we were one ER visit or serious illness away from being homeless.
