Julie Kwon became a Generation Hope Sponsor this summer to Scholar Me’Chelle Campbell, who attends Prince George’s Community College while raising her daughter. Julie is also a mother to her two-year-old son and is expecting a second child and lives with her husband in Centreville, Virginia.
Why did you decide to become involved in with Generation Hope?
I have been a stay-at-home mom for the past two years, and I understand the challenges of raising a child. But for many teen mothers, it seems that those challenges are amplified by the demands of school, work, family, and all the changes that come with having a child at a young age. I joined Generation Hope because I want to be a source of support and encouragement to a teen mother who is striving towards stability, academic success, and a promising future for her and her child.
