The mother said that she became pregnant while in high school. Due to hardships, she was forced to drop out of school.

However, she always regretted not having finished high school and getting a diploma.

37-year-old Enjoli Harris-Carter said that after hearing about her regrets, her son encouraged her to finish high school together with him.

The mother and son finished high school together and they graduated together.

The proud duo will give speeches at commencement together and they will have a dual graduation party. They hope to be positive role models to others.
