BE­CAME PREG­NANT WITH HER SON DE­VANTE WHEN SHE WAS 16. Ed­u­ca­tion is very im­por­tant to me. I want De­vante to en­joy learn­ing. A lot of peo­ple have no­ticed that he’s quite an in­tel­li­gent child. I want to pro­vide him with as much as I can to help nur­ture it. I want him to think, “Learn­ing’s cool and learn­ing’s fun.” When I grew up ed­u­ca­tion wasn’t a big thing in my fam­ily. It was more, you know, “Work, work, work.” And then, if you didn’t make it into work then you kind of had the ben­e­fit as a back-up. And I don’t want that as an op­tion for him.
