How has education changed your life/your family?  

I had all the factors once labelled as “at-risk” characteristics. I was first generation in college, low socio-economic status, a single parent, a woman of color, you name it, I could just about claim it all. But I was determined not to allow what others perceived as a deficit to be an obstacle and I was intent upon creating a better future for myself and for my son. Education helped to make that goal a reality. What began as brief period of enrollment at a community college led to both undergraduate and graduate degrees. And because of that, I have the privilege of contributing to a better future for many students.
