“Three years ago, I started my college journey not realizing how fast the day would come when I would be preparing to graduate with my Associate’s degree. My goal was to get accepted into the dental hygiene program at YVC and as a mother of three and a first-generation, nontraditional college student, I am here to tell you that making your dreams come true is possible! Going through a global pandemic did not make this any easier and at times I wanted to give up. I am so thankful for the amazing instructors and staff at YVC and the support that I received from my friends and family that helped me get through the bad times and keep going. To my fellow ASYVC members, I am so thankful that I have been able to build a friendship with each and every one of you over the past year. We have all grown so much as individuals and I know that you will all make this world a better place with whatever path you choose to follow.
It has been an honor to serve as the Grandview Student Council Vice President and be a voice for the students at YVC while working alongside all of you. To all future YVC graduates, don’t give up. This journey will be difficult at times but enjoy the journey along the way because those hard times allow us to grow and go places that we would have never imagined possible. Most importantly, remember to believe in yourself, because you also can make your dreams become a reality.”
