I have two kids, six and seven years old. My kids, girlfriend and I live in my father's house in Brooklyn, where I was born and raised. I can't live on what I earn and my kids are on food stamps. I have an Associate's degree and I would like to go back to college to get my Bachelor's degree and become a physician's assistant.
