” Yes, I made this hat.” Nadine Villar is from Nigeria and has six children, 13 grandchildren and two more on the way. The train was coming in two minutes and I didn’t have time for me&EVE interview, but I think her beautiful face says it all.
“I loved giving birth. I loved the experience of surrendering to the pain and the rhythm of my body that knows how to give birth. I did natural childbirth both times and both times I went in to the hospital at 8 am and delivered my babies by 3pm. It was all in a day’s work. I look back at those two births as the most incredible experiences, and no one can take that away from me.” Lynee is a Principal and Urban Planner at Williams and Works where she is also the youngest and only female Principal.
“Having kids was the best. Things in life can go downhill but with my kids it will never be downhill. I have three children, I wanted to have four but I stopped at three, it was enough. Raising them gives you more responsibilities and more worries but they really keep me going. When they were little my husband could drop them off at school in the morning and then head to work. I had to leave much earlier to commute from Jersey City to my job here in the city. Now I see mothers racing around to get their kids to school and still get to work on time in the morning. Luckily I didn’t have to worry about that.” Lillian Martinez works for the United States Postal Service and she has three children and six grandchildren.
