Nicole is a parent and an A+ Washington supporter. She talks about how she grew up in poverty, and how her education helped make a difference in her life. She says “[Living in poverty is] very stressful, it was hard on me as a child, on my parents. I want more for my children, and education is that key to that.” She also talks about how the early learning program Head Start has helped her daughter “really come out of her shell,” and how one great, dedicated teacher changed her son’s perspective on reading.
