Adversity, Love and Determination
After getting pregnant in her junior year of college with her son Marquis, Latrice Harrington reluctantly took a three-year break from her studies at Penn State. A month after she came back to finish her degree in hospitality management, she found out that she was pregnant with her second son Marcel.
Already moved into her apartment in State College, Latrice thought it foolish to take another three-year break with only a few semesters left in school. She carried Marcel to full term while continuing in her studies. As a full-time mother, student and employee, Latrice says that the only thing that keeps her going are her two baby boys.
