My education is a privilege and a responsibility I do not take lightly. The assistance that Marquette University and the State of Wisconsin have provided to me thus far means the world to me.
What will a college degree mean to you?
A college degree is everything to me. My graduation day will be a day of mixed emotions: of smiles that are so big my face starts to hurt, and of tears, from the joy and pure bliss I will experience when handed my diploma in May 2017.
What are your plans after graduation?
My plans after graduation include starting a family and maintaining a job as a journalist in the Milwaukee area. My dream is to work for the Journal Sentinel, and I will do everything in my power to get there.
