Operation Graduation 2013: Marilyn Martinez (DeKalb, Ill.)
I was sent to Ombudsman because I got pregnant at 15 and I was not going to school because of that. I was getting bad grades.
What I like about Ombudsman is that the teachers help you a lot. They always find a way to help you on your work. Ombudsman works for me for many reasons. One of them is that I only come for 3 hours. The other one is I have time to spend with my kids and I can work. The most important thing is that it helps me spend time with my kids.
My plans for the future are to go to college, get a good job, and be a CNA nurse and be with my kids.
