Check out BWSU’s video interview with Dr. Mom which took place Saturday, January 9, 2016 live on http://Blab.im. Below is part one of our three-part interview.
Dr. Mom, mother of nine who was a teen mom, high-school dropout and widowed, defied all odds and let nothing stand in her way as she worked to create a better life for her and her family. In December of 2014 at 67 years of age, Doris Bloom-Higginbottom graduated with her PhD from PVAMU a Texas University.
Dr. Mom’s daughter, Kimberly Bloom, had this to say about her Mom “This woman is my living hero, my game changer, a conqueror, and a warrior who won’t give up on hers’!” Pictured below, Kim and Dr. Mom
