The Day I Taught in University, Artemis Student

I was chosen. As a young mom, I have a unique perspective on parenting and life; therefore, I was asked by a university professor in the Child and Youth Care faculty to speak to her class about my personal experience. At first, I was nervous, but I was excited! I have never been to UVic before, and I had never been in a university class, so it was nerve wracking! It was exciting to be chosen, and I thought it was cool to be invited to talk about myself. I always love talking about my baby, and my experience, because I hope that my unique perspective can encourage others to not be judgemental of young moms, and see young moms in a different way. It was especially important because I was speaking to a Child and Youth Care class, and they directly work with people in similar situations to me, so I was hopeful to inspire them to see the work differently. I think more young moms should talk about their positive experiences, particularly to people who plan to work with this population, because it is never talked about in positive terms, so young moms are judged harshly.
