The statistics are against Jasmin, but she is determined to tackle motherhood and college life without sacrificing either. Balancing an on-campus job, academics, social life, and a toddler, Jasmin proves that teen pregnancy statistics and television show stereotypes are not relevant to all teenage mothers.
