My name is Gloria Malone. I am 22 years old, currently studying at Baruch College, and pursuing a degree in Public Affairs. People, politics and policy have always been an interest and passion of mine so I find most of my courses very interesting.
In an effort to not simply list the many roles that I have in life I hope that through my writings and post you will get to better understand who I am and how all of my views, realities and the lessons I have learned along the way have made me into the person I am today.
With that being said I do have to express the most important role I have. I am a proud former teen mom to my almost seven year old daughter. Sounds strange right, being a proud teen mom. Well I am and I am because having my daughter make me proud everyday is something to be proud of and defying stereotypes everyday is also something to be proud of. We currently live in New York City where I blog, do freelance writing and media consulting.
I am extremely happy and humbled to be blogging for Advocates for Youth as they are an amazing organization that provides and stands with youth around the world.
