It Was a Long Battle

College was very hard for me.  I did poorly in the beginning and was eventually suspended for a semester and also developed depression.  After returning to class, I developed severe anxiety.  I was so paranoid about doing well!  I even had to go to therapy at one point.

It would have been soooo easy for me to drop out and move on with my life, but I was determined.  I want to give my daughter a wonderful life, and education is the key to that.

Anyway, I graduated August 2007.  I am also the first female in my family to earn a degree, which I am so proud of. 

College was really difficult for me, but graduating was a great accomplishment!
