My name is Jamien.

I am a mother, daughter, sister, friend, student, survivor.

I'm a single mother of four, two boys and two girls.  I'm a full time college students studying to be a youth social worker.  I'm a giver by heart and I love to lend a helping hand.  I use art to get away from life's chaos.  Art is a brief release from my everyday struggle.  It's my peace in the midst of the storm.  I'm here alone with no family other than my children and my journey is a little different from those who have a support system, but still I manage to get things done, stay positive and rise about my situation.  It's not the easiest, however, I have dreams and goals for accomplish and more importantly children that depend on me, so I appear to remain strong through it all.

I am determined to excel in life.
