"Being an online student has afforded me the flexibility that I need without losing the support from my professors."

When I started at SNHU, my motivation was my children. I have one sophomore and one senior in high school, and I wanted to show them that no matter what, education should be their top priority. They have asked me in the past what my degree was in, and I had to tell them I didn’t go to college. I chose to start my family. After a while, I realized that starting a family should not be an obstacle to obtaining an education.

So here I am. It has been 20 years since I graduated high school, so at times, I feel like I’m lost at sea, but overall, this has been a great experience. Being an online student has afforded me the flexibility that I need without losing the support from my professors and the various resources at the school. I am looking forward to completing my degree soon. You never know what the future holds, but, with a good education, many doors will always be open for you to choose from.
