Alina Thomas

AS Fashion Merchandising, Class of 2014

"The staff at SNHU is very helpful with my career pursuit: they offer advice, support, resources, additional funding and motivation."

Hello, I am Alina Thomas, an online student with seven siblings, majoring in fashion merchandising. I am a single mother of three. I grew up in poverty and with a lack of resources, and I realized that an education was a possible alternative for a decent future. I had graduated high school with a paid college tuition and dropped out because I was carrying my first-born.

After several years, different colleges and bad luck, I explored the opportunities that Southern New Hampshire University offered, and now I am in my senior year majoring in fashion merchandising. My planned graduation date is in autumn of 2014. The staff at SNHU is very helpful with my career pursuit: they offer advice, support, resources, additional funding and motivation. As I planned to graduate, my career pursuit is a visual fashion merchandiser and buyer.
