I am a mother of four awesome children- 2 boys: 19 and 13, 2 girls: 17 and 5. I have been married for almost 19 years. I overcame a lot of obstacles in order to attend PHCC. With an amputated index finger on my writing hand and partial hearing loss, attending college has been a major challenge for me but I am determined to see it through. In the end, it will be a bittersweet victory for me- against the odds, I will break even. Overall, I have learned a major lesson that cannot be learned through classes; dreams come true because people make them come true for themselves.
