The Chronicle of Higher Education’s feature, “Hungry to Learn,” focuses on five students who discuss their struggles with food and housing insecurity.  Kassandra Montes, a single mother, is studying biochemistry and philosophy with a minor in biology at Lehman. In addition to working several jobs, she manages to participate in student government.  Montes calls balancing her college work and caring for her child “harder than anything,” and recounts her struggle.

In the article, Montes expresses appreciation for the professors who have allowed her to take her child to class.
