Receiving my Associates Degree was one of the greatest accomplishments I’ve overcame. My story starts as becoming a young mom, raising my children to the time they began elementary and enrolling to finish my education from where I left off. Some days I contemplated school because it was hard to finish homework considering how tired I was. But with this stepping stone, I plan to pursue my short term goal of becoming a nurse. I want what’s best for my children. I want my children to see how important education is and what great opportunities lay ahead when all is done.
