The Strength of Mama: The Voices in Poverty Resist Series!

November 20th, 2012

My name is Jacqueline Mendez. I'm the first one from six. In my family we are 7 in total. I'm 28 years old. I had a really rough childhood, never got to be a child. Since I was the first I had to help my mom with my brothers and sisters, while she was at work and our dad wasn't around to help. We saw how she struggled.

Being "Raised" Right!

I can look back on my early years in and out of shelters and public housing complexes and admit..... I am alive today, not because my parents reared me for society, but because they Raised Me.

Holes in My Shoes

I remember a few months back when I had a difficult experience trying to get a pair of new shoes.  My shoes were so worn down that they developed large holes on their soles.  This happened during the winter and often times I would walk home in the rain and ended up with nasty wet sox on my feet. With food and other expenses I did not have enough money to buy a new pair.  It was definitely a big hardship not to have enough money to travel comfortably by foot.
