I enjoyed reading the thoughts and feelings shared in this first voice account by a determined person who is in actual fact working her ass off to save money and get ahead so that she can go to university, earn a degree, start a business...the things many commenters here seem to accuse her of not doing, somehow. All kinds of tut tutting and meanness. So weird. Anyway. I applaud her courage, her tenacity and thank her for having the generosity to share her experience of being poor, working hard and wanting something better in this province of NS, just so the experience can be understood.

My life behind the welfare wall

I do feel bad for her.. but.. i had a crappy upbringing and a horrible home life.. between abuse and getting in trouble.. I didn't let that hold me back.. I finished my grade 12.. and took a trade where I did get help from the government through grants.. I also became a father during this time.. it is hard.. but.. it is possible if you don't give up! You will only get out of life what you put into it.. I hope all works out for her..
