Why did you choose Columbia College?
I chose Columbia College because it offered the flexibility of 8 week sessions and offered online degrees. I found this very helpful as a full time mother and employee trying to maintain a family while receiving my education at the same time.
What are your plans for the future?
With my degree and plan to work with juveniles either as a Juvenile Officer or juveniles in a residential setting.
What was your favorite course, and why?
Juvenile Delinquency. Since I currently work with abused and neglected teens, I found it interesting to learn how juveniles become delinquent and how to help them cope with their issues.
Is there anyone you would like to thank?
I would especially like to thank my husband and my parents who continued to encourage me throughout the years not to give up when things became very stressful. Also, all of my friends who helped me study and offered great resources. I can't forget my son who was a great inspiration. It was the strength I needed to keep going so that he could see me walk across the stage as a great influence to him.
