It all started with a visit to Anderson College’. … I always had a dream to be a positive role model for my children, and I’ve always told them how important an education is to live a better life. … But, I was giving myself the excuse that [as a mother and working to support them], I couldn’t possibly handle going school too. I am so happy and proud of myself for not listening. If you want a better life, you can have it too! It is possible!
I am [thrilled I’ve graduated]. It was not only for me … I inspired and motivated my friends and family to follow in my footsteps. … When you go to a school like Anderson College you will still be able to work, you will be able to support your family and [go for the life] you truly want. … Thank you, Anderson College!
