It has not been an easy decision. There has been a lot of procrastinating that has been holding me back. I am glad to say that I am attending Ashford University.

There have been a few obstacles that are in my way, but none that will stop me from completing my degree. I am a full-time working mother. It is not possible for me to just pick up and go to school and sit in a classroom. I just happen be too exhausted and in pain when I come...
