Rose started her career as a single mother. She was pregnant with her son her Freshman year at the Fashion Institute of Technology and gave birth at the age of 19. Despite having her son at a young age, she graduated with her B.S. on time AND with honors! After college, she rapidly climbed the corporate ladder and became the Director of Merchandising for Ralph Lauren’s European division before she turned 30. She recently married the love of her life, Joshua Sparks, and had her dream wedding in a castle in Florence, Italy.
In this interview Rose drops so many gems, including reminding young moms that we don’t have to give up on our dreams and to surround yourself with people who you want to be like someday.
This is episode five of our “Messy, Miraculous Motherhood” series, where we are putting the spotlight on some inspiring young moms. Every week this summer we’ll hear their unique stories and the lessons they learned along the way with God’s help.
