Cleo Amos

BA English Language & Literature, Class of 2015

"I set out to find a way to work online that combines my love of reading and writing."

I have a neuromuscular disease called Myasthenia Gravis (MG) that makes it hard for me to be active in any way. I lost my job because of MG and have lived on disability for 12 years. My doctors have told me I will never work again, but I told them, “Just watch me.”

I set out to find a way to work online that combines my love of reading and writing. I settled on online teaching. That's what I plan to do in the future as a way to support myself while still doing what I love. I’m looking forward to completing my BA in English Language and Literature.
