Shenia is 16 years old and a mother to a 9-month-old boy. Although she has a good relationship with her own mother, she craves a good father figure who can offer her support and encouragement. She has only completed the eighth grade but has dreams of becoming a detective. Unfortunately, her academic performance may limit her aspirations. She alternates between living at her boyfriend’s parents and at her mom’s house in North Hollywood, Calif. Her boyfriend has spent time at a juvenile camp for vandalism. The two hope to marry in the future.
