She said she received her first college acceptance letter from Fort Valley State, and then the letters just started rolling in.
When I got my first one from Fort Valley State, it was like wow I’m actually going to college.
So, at this moment I’m sitting at 49 acceptances and over 1.3 million in scholarships.
So to just see all of them rolling in, we have like a folder for all the letters, paper copies, and it just gets wider and wider.
We’re just like okay… We’re running out of space.
She encourages other seniors to keep working hard and trust the process.
