KINGMAN - Alyssa Ast has a message she wants to pass along to teen moms struggling to find their place in life.
I can connect to some of them and let them know they're not alone, I
will have fulfilled my purpose," said Kingman resident Ast, 26. "Anyone
can reach their dream. I'm a high-school dropout and a teen mom, so I
know that if I can succeed, so can they."
Ast speaks from
experience. She was recently published in "Chicken Soup for the Soul:
Inspiration for Writers," where she told her story in "Changing My Fate"
of starting out on the bottom rung of life and ending up as a
successful freelance writer.
