Sophomore student Amari Tate is dealing with the inevitable stress that comes with high school as well as her personal life. With four other siblings all from different fathers, Tate faces struggles with maintaining her studies as well as looking after her family.

“All my brothers and sisters have different dads. There’s four of us, and we all live at home. My mom takes care of all of us. The most recent one is three and my mom and her dad just divorced in December.”

“The rest are 13, 11, and seven. All my family lives on the East coast, so I feel a disconnect because I only get to see them during the summer. At school I won’t be able to do extra curricular activities like clubs and sports because I have to be home to babysit.”

“My mom is a nurse so she has to work all the time. Sometimes I won’t be able to do homework. I hope in the future I can be in a few clubs or sports.”
