After many years of just going through the strides of everyday life, I came to the realization that in order for me to improve the life of not only myself, but also my family, meant I needed enroll into college again. The previous college experience I had was enlightening nevertheless; it was not the time for me. On the other hand, this is my time to shine. I have been studying at Ashford University for a year now and receiving the invitation from Golden Key has been such a boost for me. I can honestly say that I did look into Golden key along with the other honor societies with Ashford University; however, I was not aiming strictly at becoming a member of any. Although I did know that if I put forth the effort, I might have the chance. Golden Key has made me swollen with pride in myself and my plan is to make Golden Key as proud of their decision to extend this invitation to me. I am completely humbled and honored.
I am a stay at home mother of three wonderful children. Life is quite hectic sometimes however very earlier on I knew the only way I was going to succeed was to set goals and plan ahead. I know I have been working hard in my studies, and this acknowledgement encourages me to continue on the path I have set out for my life. I am finally at a place in my life where I know what I want and will do everything to achieve my goals. I am proud of the fact that those closest to me are my support and cheerleading team through every class and paper that I encounter as I am also there for them in any situation that may become known. I would not be where I am right now if it were not for them and I believe that in most ways they could say the same. I believe that through Golden Key, I may have the chance to help even more individuals with whatever might be going on in their lives. That would make me very happy and grateful in the way that I would know that I am giving back.
