How did Empire State College help you shape your personal and professional goals?
It led me to expand and reinvent myself, to take chances; and have a higher self esteem as a woman and a mother. My children saw the difference and I believe I was a good role model for perseverance as they both went on to get multiple college degrees with amazing jobs.
