8th Grade Teen Mom Graduates Top of Class | Accepted into Over 25 Colleges [CHICAGO]

Beginning freshman year of high school with a new born baby is certainly not the ideal scenario, but Chicago teen Trameka Pope is living proof that it is possible to excel beyond the challenges of teen motherhood.
According to FOX 32, Pope got pregnant while in middle school and gave birth to a baby girl the summer of her eighth-grade year, just weeks before she was scheduled to begin high school. Despite the hurdles presented by Pope becoming a mother at such a young age, with the support of her mother she was able to complete high school and in two weeks, she will graduate as Valedictorian of her class from Wendell Phillips High School.
“I was told that God don’t make mistakes and he wouldn’t give anyone a child who wasn’t ready for one,” said the valedictorian.
Of course, the odds were not in her favor. At one point, she and her family were homeless. There are also those troubling statistics to take into consideration. Through it all, Pope is heading to Western Illinois University to begin working towards her PhD in social work. Read more HERE.
