“My degree is a testament to the fact that I can do hard things. During my degree, I was thrown a ton of curveballs, from finding out I was carrying my first child to my husband going on multiple deployments, to COVID impacting my job. … At times, I thought there was no way I’d be able to get through and finish, but I finally did!”
