I don't know the family in great detail but I know enough to personally celebrate with them. Shadae was grown by a single parent, Viviene Robinson (Fatty) who many times was without a job and had to fend to make ends meet (still without a job today).
Shadae's father was killed while she was a mere toddler.
She recalled how she struggled - even up to finding the money to pay for her exams :-(
Fatty might not have had phone credit that morning, but she found some and called almost everyone she knew to share her jubilation :-)
Despite growing up in trying, depressed and disadvantage situations, Shadae has always set her goals high; she never let that overcame her.
In fact, I asked her what would be her advice to other young children in the community, her response: "Don't let anyone tell you you cannot do it".
Shadae says she feels especially proud of herself and for her family as she was the only one that was able to take the examination, let alone pass them. She is the last of five children for her mother.
She asked to say thanks to all her teachers, especially her business teacher, Ms Blackwood.
She has her eyes set on continuing her studies and become an accountant but is unable to pursue her ambitions at this time because of financial struggles.
I've been supporting her teacher, Ms Cunningham (who believed in her a lot). She is trying to garner support for her in any way, so if you have any leads please Contact us.
In any case, please at least join me, The St. James High School fraternity, her family and community in saying, Congrats Shadae! Continue to reach for the stars!
