I WILL get a position as a Student Affairs Professional.
I WILL get my Master's in Higher Education

Then I was watching Oprah's Lifeclass. There it was that I found my oneword and inspiration. A girl in Africa wanted to learn to read. But girls in Africa are not allowed in school. She learned to read and write by doing her brother's homework. She then wrote down her dreams and buried them. And then she ACHIEVED them. She came to America and got her Batchelor's degree, then her Master's degree and now her Doctorate. AND now she is building a school in her villiage so that other girls can learn.
