Elice & Daisy
ALUMNA, TEEN SUCCESS, INC.
Elice Ramirez-Solis (19), a 2017 Teen Success, Inc. Scholarship Recipient, shares where she and her daughter Daisy are now. Elice graduated the Teen Success, Inc. Fresno program and has just started her 2nd year at Fresno City Community College.
Being a mom and a student is hard
I feel wrong sometimes leaving Daisy when I go to school, but my Teen Success Advocates have always helped me ease the guilt by reminding me that the time away is to better our future. I currently have A’s in all of my classes and that gives me peace of mind.
I want to help others
I chose to major in psychology because I would like to help others. I have worked on my personal issues by expanding my knowledge and finding ways to better my life. Psychology is a stepping stone in achieving multiple academic degrees.
My daughter and my mom motivate me to continue school
Daisy, who watches every move that I make, is a big motivation for me. She has been my little soldier helping me conquer my battles from the sidelines.
My mother has instilled in her children that education is the key to success. School has always been my second home, but now it’s become more important.
