#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

Shavon Parker, 28, of Blue Island, IL

Shavon Parker certainly has a lot on her plate. Not only is she a single mother of two young girls, 7 years and 16 months old, but she also teaches Pre-K classes full time and maintains a 3.1 GPA at DePaul University.

After getting her Bachelor’s degree from DePaul, she hopes to go into a Master’s program. Ultimately, she wants to become a public school teacher in an inner city school district.

“I’ve always been the type of girl to try to help people on a positive level,” she said of wanting to become a teacher.

She will use her funds to pay the tuition and books for her remaining classes.
