Single Mom Testament – When Taylor Hunter discovered she was pregnant as a high school junior, she almost gave up on education and quit school.
“I just knew my life was over. Some mornings I didn’t want to go to school or finish,” Hunter said.
But somehow, the single mother remained tenacious. Perseverance through teen pregnancy and financial setbacks is what led Hunter to where she is today – a soon-to-be graduate of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU).
The senior social work student from Thomasville, Ga., says her daughter inspires her to keep moving forward and not give up on her quest to succeed.

“Whenever I feel like giving up, I look at her picture on my phone and remember why I am working hard,” Hunter said. “When you come from a strong, powerful, praying family like I do, negative thoughts vanish quickly!”
Hunter’s focus and commitment allowed her to successfully navigate through caring for a kindergarten-aged daughter and taking 18 credit hours in one semester to meet her four-year graduation goal.
