I was an unplanned pregnancy.
My mum was a 19-year-old student and my dad was a 21-year-old apprentice. They had $60 when I was born!
These circumstances may have predicted that my life, and my mum’s life, would be difficult and somehow lacking in quality. However, after putting her education on hold, my mum is now a senior teacher at a local private school; I have a PhD and am married with a child of my own.
