BS Operations & Project Management, Class of 2018

"My advisor has been exceptional in inspiring me when I am confronted with issues or concerns."

Since 2007, my goal has been to successfully achieve a higher education. In 2007, I was a student at another university and remained a student there until 2009. Due to some issues, I had to drop out. Southern New Hampshire University was my choice after reviewing several schools provided by the Federal Student Education Database and the admissions counselor, Danielle Thompson. Danielle was great with helping in the decision to choose this institution. She never spoke about why I should not choose those other schools; she just stated what made Southern New Hampshire University a unique school. Since then, Emma Wilson has been exceptional in inspiring me when I am confronted with issues or concerns. Accomplishing my goal, thus far, has not been easy due to various stumbling blocks — I refuse to give up. Truly, I am ready for adversity. It has been common in my life; I just brace myself, pray and keep on going forward. My hopes are that I can inspire our youth to make a sound decision to stay in school and pursue their education because making the decision to skip college is not a good path to make toward becoming successful.
