Great day at the UFT on Saturday, March 28, 2015, for (Left to Right) Jessica Padilla, Zully Roman, and Luis Hoffman. Students listened to a panel of celebrities who overcame obstacles as children and excelled in their careers. TT Torres, daytime DJ from Hot 97, talked about how her mother left her at her friend's house at the age of 14. Ms. Torres surmounted considerable odds to graduate college in Virginia and start up as a DJ. Currently she is a NYC DJ in one of the biggest radio station markets across the country. Ms. Torres started " I will wait till I graduate," a campaign to keep teenagers Informed about how difficult it is to raise a child when one is a teenage single mother.
