Single Black Woman With 4 kids Becomes Neuro Surgeon

leave a comment »

My cousin and I were discussing how tough this economy is and how to bounce back from it. She starts to tell me about one of her facebook friends, a single black woman with 4 kids who got a divorce from her husband and decided she was fed up with having to try to take care of the kids and receive child support. She didn’t want to fight the court system and get all hyped and amped. What did she do?

She decided to go on a journey that few have the courage to undertake. She became a brain surgeon! This is a true story. Even while tending to the kids and being a great mom, she put on her bootstraps and started studying. It took her ten solid years of staying focused on the dream, taking care of the kids who all live with her, and keeping the dream of becoming a pediatric neurosurgeon alive.

She decided to never say quit and never have not even one excuse. She also decided to never complain about the children’s father. That’s rare in and of itself. She put her head down and kept driving towards the goal. Today, 12 years after the journey began, this young lady is a pediatric neuro surgeon in Oakland, California.

Despite what’s happening in our economy, we have American true grit. We can make it with a dream. Keep driving toward your goal and never, ever quit!

Are Black Women Really Tired of Black Men?

with one comment

I watched a Twitter friend’s rant today about how tired she was of black men. I saw her say that black women take care of the kids, take care of the house, make all the money, and do everything in the world. Wow! So, are black women saying that they simply don’t need a man? Are they playing into the minds and plan of a master plan that is designed to break black people apart? Is she right? Is she wrong?

I think this thought is dangerous. I know she was highly frustrated but even when I’m highly frustrated, I can’t simply abandon hope of our black women and say that I don’t want them anymore. After all, I have a daughter so I can’t just abandon the beautiful black woman. What do y’all think?
