Follow Your Heart :: A MSW Student Shares Her Thoughts

Posted by on Tuesday October 18, 2016


As a single parent, working a full-time job and having limited educational experience, I never thought it was possible to obtain a higher level of education. This notion changed in 2005 when I received Christ as my personal savior.  In 2006, God called me into the profession of Social Work, and in 2015, God miraculously opened the doors for me to obtain my graduate degree at Nyack College, becoming a part of the first cohort to start the new MSW program.    


Nyack College has given me the opportunity to become a part-time employee at the campus while giving me the flexibility to take courses in the evening. The professors and other faculty members have recognized my natural ability to help others and are cultivating it to prepare me for leadership outside the community. I am happy to say I am receiving more of a mentorship experience at Nyack College.


In life, I was persuaded to follow a different path, but I chose to follow my heart. You never know where your passion will lead you because opportunities have already been predestined for you.
