NeQuacia Porsha Jacobs-Lewis
High school graduation, diploma, career — gone
The chairs were filled with rows of students. She was the honor student, but her mom stood in her place, receiving her hard-earned high school diploma.
She planned to attend the University of Texas at Austin and help cancer patients; she would’ve been the first in her family to graduate from college. She wanted to ease her family’s financial struggles. She spoiled her three sisters but also set an example for them.
