Diana Iris Muniz Navarrete

"I am nineteen years old, I have two children and I am pregnant with my third. When I was thirteen I made a sex video with my boyfriend. The video was on my boyfriend's phone and his phone was stolen and the video was published on Facebook.  Because of the video, my parents made me marry the boy. The cyber-bullying was awful and I tried to commit suicide several times and started seeing a psychiatrist.  But, when I was 15 I gave birth to my first child, my son, and because of him I knew I had to lift myself out of my depression and out of my situation.  I left my first husband because he mistreated me.  Now I am remarried and I want to write a book about my experience.  I am only nineteen and already I have experienced a lot of pain but I also know that when a woman wants to, she can lift herself up." - Diana Iris Muniz Navarrete is a mother and waitress in Troncones, Mexico.

I'm a single mother and I can earn more money here.  I'm sad without them but I will stay and work for as long as God allows me to." - Nancy is a single mother from Mexico who works as a waitress in a Mexican Restaurant in New Mexico.
