Tree of Life: A Young Mother's D.R.E.A.M.

Success and accomplishments don't have an age nor do they come without struggle, sacrifice, or obstacles.  In every step that you take towards succession do not let anyone, thing, or problem come between you and your goals.  Don't weigh success by age or how quickly you gain it, but by whats inside your heart and making strides to reaching your goals.   Geneva Farrow is a young black women paving the way for many young women across this country.  She is showing that ALL things are obtainable if you work to reach them.  As you read a little bit about who she is and what she is doing, you will grow strength in knowing that dreams can become reality. 

Geneva Farrow is the Executive Director and Founder of A Young Mother’s D.R.E.A.M. (YMD) a mentoring organization that helps young mothers complete their education.  Geneva became a parent at the age of 19 while attending Temple University in Philadelphia PA.  If you attended Temple at that time you most likely saw her on campus with a baby strapped to her chest going to class. She held on to her dreams and graduated in 4 yrs without skipping a beat.  She longed to help other young mothers to conquer this same feat, which is why she founded YMD. She believes that God gets us through challenging situations so that we can help others going through the same challenge. Geneva speaks to middle and high school students about goal setting in her DREAM Chasers workshop to help in her mission to reduce teen pregnancy.  She believes that when children have a strong grip on a dream they are less likely to be sidetracked.  

Her favorite quote: You can not solve a problem with  the same mindset used to create it –Albert Einstein
