Jennifer Wells-Marshall was trying to make ends meet while in college and raising her young daughter. She worked every day, but it wasn’t enough to pay all the bills and put food on the table. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helped her cover the cost of food so her daughter wouldn’t be hungry.
Jennifer tells her friend and colleague, Helen Jones, about the judgement she faced and how she persevered and went on to get her Ph.D. and have a successful career. Now 25 years old, Jennifer’s daughter has completed college and is in the process of finishing her master’s degree.
