Being Alone, Family, and Future: Daughter of Honduran immigrants is now pursuing a career in medicine at Harvard University! Repost @karlaaaxoxo: "My grind comes from seeing my mother, a TPS recipient from Honduras, struggle and sacrifice everything so that I could have a better life. Witnessing her pain, tears, sacrifice, effort, hardwork every single day while she still sustained her elegance, dignity, and character as a woman filled me with admiration of her. Una luchadora! I never saw her laying in bed feeling sorry for herself, never complained, always smiled and rose her head high! Despite all the odds stacked against her, her strength and ability to push HARDER than how she started fuels me. NEVER in my life will I ever allow anyone to classify me & my future through stereotypes & statistics! I wasn't born with a shining crown nor was anything ever given to me in a silver platter, no one in my family even attended a university let alone pursue a carrier in medicine and none still don't even speak English but through my circumstances in life coming from nothing. I'd be damned to settle for anything less than great! Mi mami broke chains, left Honduras to give me a better future. I raise my voice loud and proud to those who's family migrated so we can graduate, the minority, the underdogs, to those who fight against all odds daily, the ones who are breaking chains, those who were seen to never even have a future & instantly labeled to become another statistic GUESS WHAT! We have become men and women with a vision, educated, far from the norm, we have become people determined to influence & change the world."

Children, Community, and Espn: Michael Jordan Donates $7 Million To Launch Two Medical Clinics in Charlotte, NC @balleralert Michael Jordan Donates $7 Million To Launch Two Medical Clinics in Charlotte, NC – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Charlotte Hornets owner and NBA legend, MichaelJordan, is donating $7 million to fund the launch of two medical clinics in North Carolina. The Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics, which will be built in north and northwest Charlotte, will be one of the largest gifts ever from the superstar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Through my years of working with Novant Health, I have been impressed with their approach and their commitment to the community,” Jordan said in a release on Monday. “It is my hope that these clinics will help provide a brighter and healthier future for the children and families they serve.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A spokesperson for the NBA great spoke with The Associated Press, on Monday, to further discuss the donation. He said Jordan “feels so great about being able to impact the Charlotte community and help people really deserve it. Michael and Novant are really excited about this project.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the Charlotte Observer, the project came about after Jordan learned of a “2014 study from Harvard and the University of California at Berkeley that found poor children in Charlotte have the worst odds of those in any big U.S. city to life themselves out of poverty,” Jordan’s spokesperson revealed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Michael really wanted to do something personally, he and his family, in the North Carolina area, separate we’ve done with the Hornets.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The two clinics are expected to care for nearly “35,000 children and adults who don’t have access to primary or preventative care,” projected to open in 2020. According to ESPN, the clinics will allow patients to receive “affordable, high-quality care.” They could also limit emergency room utilization, and decrease hospitalization for residents in the Charlotte area. ballerificcharity

Children, College, and Fall: Former President Barack Obama Says He Cried After Malia Obama's Harvard Sendoff @balleralert Former President Barack Obama Says He Cried After Malia Obama’s Harvard Sendoff - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last month, former President BarackObama dropped his oldest daughter off to her campus residence at Harvard University. However, like many other families who sent their children off to start their educational career this fall, President Obama was overcome with emotion at the sight of his little girl embarking on this new journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “For those of us who have daughters, it just happens fast. I dropped off Malia at college, and I was saying to Joe and Jill [Biden] that it was a little bit like open-heart surgery,” Obama said at the Beau Biden Foundation’s for the Protection of Children reception on Sunday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I was proud that I did not cry in front of her,” Obama quipped. “But on the way back, the Secret Service was off, looking straight ahead, pretending they weren’t hearing me as I sniffled and blew my nose. It was rough.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Obama continued, saying the experience was “a reminder that, at the end of our lives, whatever else we’ve accomplished, the things that we’ll remember are the joys that our children – and hopefully way later, our grandchildren – bring us.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The former president spoke at the reception to honor former Vice President JoeBiden’s late son, Beau, who died of brain cancer back in 2015. Obama spoke highly of the foundation and its work to protect children, saying “It is proper and right that somebody as thoughtful and genuine and strong as Beau made it one of his missions to make sure that every child had protection.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He continued, saying “I am here just to lend my voice and my support to a family that I care deeply about, to honor a man that I thought the world of, and to say thank you to all of you for supporting this wonderful cause.”

Crime, Memes, and New York: Woman Becomes Ph.D Candidate at N.Y.U After Serving 20 Years in Prison for Murder @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.comm Woman Becomes Ph.D Candidate at N.Y.U After Serving 20 Years in Prison for Murder - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1996, MichelleJones was charged with murder and neglect of her four-year-old son. While incarcerated in an Indiana prison for more than two decades, the NY Times reports that Jones became a published scholar of American history and used the prison library to further her education. During her sentence, Jones, alongside a group of inmates, produced the best research project for the Indiana Historical Society, in addition to writing several dance compositions and plays, one of which is set to open at an Indianapolis theater in December. She also got certified as a paralegal and received a bachelor’s degree in 2004. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After spending 20 of an initial 50-year sentence behind bars, Jones was released. The very next day, Jones took her talents to New York University (NYU) to join the school’s doctoral program, only after her application was accepted and later denied by Harvard University’s history program, which was her first choice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although, Jones was among 18 applicants out of over 300 for the program, her application was overturned after some professors raised concerns about her application. While other professors supported Jones, calling her “one of the strongest candidates in the country last year, period,” Jones was ultimately denied for minimizing her crime “to the point of misrepresentation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, Jones got pregnant as a result of non-consensual sex with a high school senior, at the age of 14. In turn, her mother beat her in the stomach with a board, forcing her to be removed from the home. After years of domestic violence and neglect, Jones wrote in a personal statement that she suffered a psychological breakdown and did the same things to her own son, Brandon Sims. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sims was murdered back in 1992, but the details remain unclear, as the body was never recovered.
