Getting my degree has been a family affair—I promised my daughter when she went to college, I would go, too. Today, I am a college graduate, working full-time, as well as being a full-time wife and mother. I am so proud that my daughter is continuing her studies to be a probation officer and that my son is graduating from Stanford.
