Never let anyone tell you you can’t do something! It’s already hard enough to graduate from college and earn your bachelor’s degree, but one California woman beat the odds and graduated with three degrees all at the same damn time. And oh yeah, she did it all while being a single mother of three! 28-year-old Deanna Jordan had a lot to be proud of when she graduated from UCLA on Friday. The Compton native was just 18 years old when she got pregnant fresh out of high school, and became pregnant again with her third child at the age of 22. With three boys at home, Deanna made the decision to do better. So she enrolled at West Los Angeles Community College for two years and then transferred to UCLA, where she spent three-and-a-half years busting her butt to make sure she created a future for herself and her kids. The inspiring grad, who also works in Compton’s mayor’s office, says law school is next for her and that she hopes to one day become a district attorney. Amazing! via Necole Bitchie.com
