Sherry ONeill

BA Creative Writing & English, Class of 2018

"My goal is to learn all that I can about writing short stories and poems."

I didn't graduate high school. I dropped out when I was 16, but it was always a dream to someday find a way to graduate. In 2013, I finally graduated high school. After crossing that off of my bucket list, I decided to replace it with something else: a college degree.

While looking at tons of online colleges, a Southern New Hampshire University commercial came on. I visited their webpage and found the creative writing degree offering. I really enjoy writing short stories and poems. I checked out comments about the school, and then applied.

Now, I have a chance to do more then just graduate high school. I am in college, and my goal is to learn all that I can about writing short stories and poems. Who knows where that might go, but finding out is going to be fun.

Even though I am 45 years old, I now have a chance to do more with my life. I have new things to add to my bucket list and more dreams to aspire to. I can't wait to start living this new chapter in my life.
