What is your motivation for obtaining your degree here at Averett University?
My motivation for obtaining my degree was December 16 of 2015 I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer, and I also wanted to be an inspiration to my children and grandchildren that no matter what happens in life, never give up on your dreams. I was unable to attend college after high school, then my family came along, and my dreams were put on hold, so I wanted to get my college degree as a personal accomplishment.
