I was a single mom with a six-month-old baby. I knew I wanted to go to college, but didn’t know if I could balance being a mom and a full-time student while working. As a part-time night student, I learned the layout of the campus and became acquainted with the instructors and staff. When I became a full-time student in fall 2014, I knew what to expect. I was still nervous but knew what I wanted and that I had a goal to reach.
After I graduate from CCCC, I will transfer to Kansas State University and enroll in their park management and conservation program. I hope to go on and earn a master’s degree at K-State. My goal is to work in one of the many beautiful national parks within the United States.
