Farrah Abraham, the Teen mom on MTV’s Teen Mom, opens up about her challenges, hopes and fears.
Farrah first appeared on MTV’s 16 & Pregnant, and is probably one of the most known teen moms in America. The shows have documented the 18-year-old’s young life, giving viewers insight into the life and challenges faced by the young mother.
RadarOnline.com did an interview with Farrah who revealed that the most difficult part of being a teen mom is “going to school full time, having a job and being a great mom”.
When asked what she misses most about her life before baby Sophia, she said “all the spare time I had.” But the most rewarding part she says, is “all the love I feel, even when I feel all alone, I still feel the love.”
Her biggest fears are something happening to her or Sophia physcially. She hopes to complete an Associates Degree in Culinary Management, to write a book about her experiences as a teen mom, and to open a restaurant .
Farrah says that being a teenage mom is nothing like what she had expected. She’s learned “not to take anything for granted, work and try your hardest.”
“All through Sophia, [I learned ] how to be there and change myself, and how to be a good parent. I am very happy I got this opportunity and it has helped me out a lot in my situation.
When asked what advice she could offer other teen moms, or to teens in general, Farrah said: “make sure you live up to your personal expectations, being a great parent for your children and not ever giving up the dreams that you had before having a child.”
