It was always my belief that the sky is not the limit but only Plan B. It is this belief that enabled me to get out of the trenches and lift myself up from in the lowest point of my life.
I was the eldest of four kids in a family of six. We were poor. I was nine when I started to clean synagogues to support my family. As I got older, I realized what was happening, and I wanted something more for myself. I had a burning desire to succeed and break the poverty chain.
In high school, I met a guy who would become my husband. The idea of starting a household was exciting to me, and I firmly believed that this new start would help me break free of the financial situation I was in. I was 19 when we married, and soon found myself working three jobs to support us. My husband struggled to keep a job for more than a few months at a time.
We had no money – not even to buy bread.
I had every desire to make a life for myself – to get past my adversities.
