Rachel Campi, then 14, stopped going to school after finding out she was pregnant.
The young mother was not completely destroyed by the hardship, though. She promised herself that she would keep trying. To provide her young daughter the ideal upbringing, she would put in a lot of effort at work and in school.
And after earning her degree from the university and holding hands with her 6-year-old kid, Rachel recently posted touching images on social media.
Rachel eventually enrolled in a university after attending a number of different schools, including York College. The main motivation for mom to keep going on this demanding and protracted journey was little Lilly-Rose.
A challenge was made to Rachel at one point.
It was extremely difficult mentally and ethically, she says of her situation. While I seemed to be moving in the dark, Lilly-Rose lit my way. There were many difficult occasions in my first year of college. I doubted my capacity to complete everything, sobbed as I walked down the hall, thought about stopping my studies, and wondered why I was in such a difficult situation.
Nevertheless, the mother and daughter managed. They even worked together on their mother’s final writing project. Lilly-Rose finished her schoolwork while Rachel prepared for her finals.
Rachel recently received a degree and diploma in counseling psychology. The day of the university’s graduation ceremony had several touching moments. Lilly-Rose was present, of course.
The tiny girl reportedly watched in astonishment as her mother put on a graduation cap. During the ceremony, Lilly-Rose also corrected the announcer after she mispronounced her mother’s last name when summoning her up to the stage. This is my mum, the girl exclaimed.
Rachel Campi has no intention of stopping. She wants to become a public speaker and is an ardent supporter of MindMate and the National Health Service (NHS).
Rachel gives hope to everyone who is struggling with self-doubt by saying, “Anything is possible if you truly want it.”
