  • And so you have a child named Emmett.

  • Yeah.

  • And he's how old?

  • 10 months.

  • And you're a single mom.

  • Mm-hmm.

  • And so you thought, I'm not going

  • [STAMMERS]

  • You had nobody--

  • I was going to.

  • [AUDIENCE COOS]

  • I know.

  • Look at that face.

  • Because you didn't have anybody to watch Emmett.

  • So how did this work out?

  • So September 7th, I got back to my office, Ellen.

  • And you know, you get this email from this student that says,

  • Dr. Musoma, can I meet with you before your class

  • starts today so that you can go over what's going on in class?

  • Because I'm not going to be able to make it to class today.

  • Hi.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • Hey, puppa.

  • Hey, puppa.

  • Hey, you're adorable.

  • All right, so you said this was going to be a rough year.

  • You didn't even think you were going

  • to be able to go to class.

  • And why is that?

  • Well--

  • Because of him.

  • Yes, I mean, I had I got pregnant with Emmett.

  • And I had him, obviously.

  • And I thought that things were just going downhill.

  • I just recently became a single mom.

  • And so I was depressed.

  • I didn't know what to do.

  • And he just completely turned around my year, completely.

  • And yeah, now I'm obviously able to go to school

  • and bring Emmett.

  • Yeah, amazing.

  • All right, so you were in labor, from what I understand,

  • and writing a paper at the same time.

  • Yes.

  • I had a photography assignment due.

  • And I was being induced at 5:30 in the morning.

  • So I was on pitocin and sending in my phot--

  • I wasn't able to finish it though, because--

  • And what-- what do you want?

  • You want some water?

  • Are you thirsty?

  • No, you want the flowers?

  • You're just pointing, saying they're pretty, pretty flowers.

  • What is the hardest part about being a single mom?

  • I am not very good with schedules.

  • I never have been.

  • And so being a single mom and a student

  • is really really, really hard.

  • But I just have to--

  • it's been hard trying to stick to a schedule.

  • He doesn't really know what he wants.

  • But yeah, that's got to be the hardest part.

  • Just organizing everything.

  • Organizing.

  • But Emmett makes it so much better.

  • He's such a blessing.

  • And he's my best friend.

  • [LAUGHS]

  • Oh.

  • [AUDIENCE COOS]

  • Well, now I want a baby.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Look at what you've done.

  • Well, he does [INAUDIBLE].

  • Oh, Emmett.

  • Let's just stay like this for a minute.

  • I don't have--

  • I don't have any more questions.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Emmett.

  • Why is he so sweet?

  • He is so sweet.

  • He did the same thing in class.

  • I mean, what happened in class, he just

  • kind of walked down and--

  • He did.

  • --and did the same thing.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Don't act like you do this too.

  • It's just me and him right now.
