Over the years, I've told my story to many who've crossed my path -- family members, friends, co-workers, strangers in the grocery store. And every time I tell it, I become re-inspired.
My journey started when I was 24 years old as an independent young woman with a full-time job, limited income, limited time, few resources, little college experience, scarce opportunities, and a drive to be a college graduate -- the first in my immediate family. How was I going to achieve my goals to attain affordable continuing education as an adult surviving and scraping by out in the real world, barely keeping my head above water? My circumstances became even more challenging three years later when I found myself to be a divorced single parent.
Today, 14 years later, my journey continues as, not only a lifelong learner, but a recipient of an Associates and Bachelors degrees and a full-time employee of Granite State College, one of the NH colleges of the University System of New Hampshire. On top of that, I'm planning on getting my Masters degree in the near future!
