Bonus: What advice would you give to prospective and current students? “I would say that you should never give up on your dreams, it’s never too late to return to school, and rise above any obstacles that stand in the way of you reaching your goals. I am 49 years old and I was faced with the same goals to pursue my education. I was a 9th grade dropout, a teenage mother, cancer survivor and I struggled financially most of my life. However today, I am a full-time student, an aspiring actress, a real estate broker, a published poet and a motivational speaker.”
