There are a lot of sacrifices a mother makes when she`s raising a child by herself. I saw it when I was growing up, watching all my mother did for me. But it wasn`t until recently that I fully understood the price she paid because of how we had to struggle.
The person who I have my child with is going to be the right person. I don't want to raise a child by myself. I could do it. But I definitely don't want to. I want to be a mother who has the original father there. And I want to be with that person until I'm 80 years old, sitting out on the porch with our glasses of lemonade, laughing about our lives.
I started doing radio commercials for Kmart when I was 4. They had to splice all my consonants together because I couldn't talk very well. But these jobs helped my mother and me put food on the table. It took the two of us working.
