Forgive me Hot Peeps! Life has been happening and I am grateful for EVERYTHING! I’ve missed a few Hot Mama post. This month I want to celebrate a young lady I have seen come full circle in her journey. I’ve seen this lady experience the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows. At a time in her life where she was Daddy’s little girl she lost her Father and in a moments eye as we all stood in awe of how wonderful and generous her mom was, she lost her mom. Through all of this she has maintained her faith, despite whatever struggles have appeared. She is one of the dopest single moms I know and she is this month’s HOTTEST MAMA! Ms. Shanika Rose we honor you!
“Today marks the end of a journey that started way back in 1997. 🙇🏽♀️I was a youngster with big dreams, ready to take over the 🌏. After a baby, 👼🏾SEVERAL deaths of my closest family members 🥀lost loves & friends, 💔domestic violence, depression and well just life! 💆🏽My dreams were diminished and extremely so slow to fruition; if existent at all! 😔There were points where I lost all hope, self esteem, and will to keep going. I wanted to give up. 😩Hell I did give up for a while, but something inside me wouldn’t let me stop ….(#badgirl #cantstopwontstop!) so I continued. I pressed on & I never gave up. So imagine my face today when my professor told me I got a 💯 % on my final exam. 😳 Y’all tears just filled my eyes, & joy filled my soul hunti!! 😭🤗Despite everything that was against me I did it!! I will have my BS in Mental Health Social Work💁🏽 and I can’t be more proud of myself! Trust me, if I can do it, YOU CAN TOO‼️It doesn’t have to be a degree, but whatever your desires are, & no matter how the odds are stacked against you NEVER GIVE UP! 🙅🏽Do that shit and do it well baby! 👌🏽Thank you to my family and friends for all the support over the years. I definitely could not have done it without my #village! 💪🏾“~Shanika Rose
