Hello! My Name Is…
My name is Chantel Christian and I’m 23 years old. I’m currently working at SOVAH Health but my career goal would be to become a Special Events Coordinator and own my very own Event Company. My hobbies would include reading with my 5 year old son and watching 90’s sitcoms.
What is your motivation for obtaining your degree here at Averett University?
My motivation for obtaining my degree would have to be my son. I want to provide a better life for my family.
Why did you choose Averett University’s Graduate & Professional Studies program?
I chose Averett’s Graduate and Professional Studies Program because it fits my needs. After talking to Jonathan Nichels, admissions counselor, he helped me realize the benefits of me attending Averett University versus any other institution with an online degree program. I’m a single mom and I work full-time, so being able to take all of my classes online has been tremendously convenient.
