Interviewed as a young parent resource centre worker
Melissa McColl, now a parent-child counsellor at Jessie's, was herself a teen mother at 19. She turned to Jessie's for help when she was a young mother alone in the city. There, she attended cooking and nutrition classes, videotaped her baby's milestones and received breastfeeding support.
She was also encouraged by Jessie's staff to go to college. She took a cooking and catering course before switching to early childhood education at Seneca.
After picking up straight A's, she attended York University, where she majored in psychology.
Her survival pattern was simple: she put Malik (now 12) in daycare at the school at 7:30 a.m. and spent the entire day on campus attending classes and getting work done. She picked up her son at 6:30 p.m. and headed home, where he was fed and played with until bedtime.
Getting that degree was the most wonderful achievement, she says.
"It was amazing. I loved it and felt so proud."
