Take the next step

They told me I couldn’t. So I did.

“As a teen mom, I was told I wasn’t going to be able to do a lot. I didn’t want that to hold me back. So, I think that pushed me. … I wanted to prove them wrong. … It does make you feel like you can stand up a little taller and put your shoulders back. It’s a good feeling.”

— Carmen J., nurse practitioner, grandmother, tenacious achiever, Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) graduate

I didn’t think I was smart enough. But I was more than prepared.

“I emailed [my professor] and I told her I’m not smart enough to do this. And immediately, she called me on the phone. … She said, ‘You can do this. You’re not supposed to be a doctoral-level writer yet. You’re in your first class. Trust the process.’”

— David S., Professor, educational director, grill master, Doctor of Education in Higher Education Leadership graduate

There was more that I wanted to accomplish. Now I can.

“I know that I’m going to be able to continue to make a significant impact in my own country and in the globe. Simply because I said yes to a program that taught me well beyond the outside of the online classroom, things that apply to my life.”

— Marcy B., adoptive mom and adoption advocate, IT professional, podcaster, Master of Business Administration Graduate
