“I Chose Life”. Beating The Statistics of Teen Pregnancy- With Daisy Torres

Welcome back, in today’s episode I speak with Daisy Torres and her struggles early on in life when she became a mother at the young age of 16 years old. Coming from a family that worked very hard to make ends meet, Daisy was devastated when she realized that being pregnant meant that she might not be able to get ahead in life and pursue the career she had always dreamed of- that of becoming an architect. In this episode Daisy shares her story of her early life and humble beginnings, the challenges she went through being a teenage mom, and how she was able to beat the statistics for teenage mothers getting a formal education. Daisy, thankfully and with a lot of hard work, was able to get herself through school and achieve her dream.

Daisy places a lot of credit for her success on the support that her family gave her throughout her journey that she says made it all possible. Due to this Daisy is very passionate about spreading awareness about the importance of empowering and supporting young mothers, along with praising them for choosing life, rather than frowning upon them. This, Daisy attests, is what is truly needed to help these young women succeed.

About the guest: Daisy Torres-Pertuz is the VP of Development for Crescent Heights, one of the nation’s leading urban real estate firms specializing in the development, ownership and operation of architecturally distinctive mixed-use high rises in major cities across the United States.
