Despite the Odds, I Became a Nurse, Nursetogether.com

Teen mothers are more likely to drop out of high school than girls who wait to have children.

Statistics will tell you that only 40 percent of teenagers who have children before age 18 move forward and graduate from high school.  Statistics also say that only 1.5% will have a college degree by age 30.*  Teen mothers are more likely to end up on welfare (nearly 80 percent of unmarried teen mothers end up on welfare according to the March of Dimes) and will wind up living in poverty with their children.**

Glad I didn’t pay much attention to statistics.

Despite becoming pregnant as a teenager, I didn't drop out of high school; I graduated early, enrolled in college and became a nurse.
