BA Psychology - Forensic Psychology, Class of 2015

"I had to go through two other schools before I came to the SNHU, but now I finally feel like I am taken care of and not left alone."

I graduated from high school in Germany in 2001. But it took me until 2010 to come over to the U.S. with just one goal: becoming a psychologist to help people. I have been analyzing people around me since I was twenty-three and pregnant with my son, Leo, after noticing different reactions from people towards young mothers. And when my son's father became "weird," and we split up, I realized that there couldn't be anything other than psychology for me.

I started working full-time for the KY Department of Corrections’ Division of Substance Abuse last year. I am a full-time student, and I’m also a single mom. I am very proud of myself because I can see in my son that this way is the right way. My being a good example for him and being able to build him a good foundation for his future is probably my biggest encouragement. I still have a few more years to go until I will get my desired degree, but it is already less than when I first started in fall 2011! I had to go through two other schools before I came to the SNHU, but now I finally feel like I am taken care of and not left alone.
