School dropout, health complications, unmarried with a premature baby and all of 16- these are the facts of life for popular softball player and reality TV star Chelsea Anne Houska. These facts are daunting but Chels didn’t bow down to these difficulties; she pursued her education and directed her life to positive things. The TV personality cleared her GED (General Educational Development) after the birth of her daughter. Today, the girl has a net worth of around 1 million US dollars and enjoys a huge following on social media. She has amassed 4.2 million followers on photo sharing site Instagram, 1.66 million fans on microblogging site Twitter and 377K on Vine. There were reports that she started a lifestyle blog to write about motherhood, makeup, skincare and other beauty related topics. According to InTouch Weekly Chelsea has also taken up a fashion project to launch her own line of beanies. The grit and determination of Chelsea is surely commendable and inspires many like her to beat distress and look at the positives in life.
The Meteoric Rise To Stardom
Chelsea rose to prominence when she appeared as the main cast of reality TV Series 16 and Pregnant’s second season on MTV. Later, she also featured in Teen Mom 2. The road to fame was full of thorns for the girl because she had to drop out of school after becoming pregnant by her then boyfriend, Adam Lind. This was not an easy route again, as her pregnancy was a difficult one since she had to go through Braxton Hicks contractions. Her pregnancy distress didn’t end here, as on the first day of her senior year in 2009 she went into labor five weeks earlier and was blessed with a baby girl. Chelsea was not disheartened by the fact that she would have to raise her daughter alone. At such a young age bringing up a daughter singlehandedly added to Chelsea’s woes but she got full support from her family. The social media star made up her mind to study cosmetology. She earned her GED and took admission in a beauty school. Later, she got a part-time job in a salon, which eased some of the pressure on her shoulders. The girl graduated in cosmetology in November 2013.
