Jackie became a teen mom at the age of 15, and by 17 she had two children. Jackie is also a Hope House teen mom — who studied for two years to earn her GED.
She recently spoke at our GED Graduation Ceremony, where she encouraged other teen moms to stay strong.
“Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it,” she said from the podium.
Today Jackie is a student at Front Range Community College, where she is pursuing her dream of becoming a police officer. The future for Jackie and her sons is bright.
