My classes that first semester were challenging but intriguing. I was so excited for my first paper to be due! Of course I was signed up for Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies, and I fell in love. Throughout my time at Guilford, I set the bar higher and higher for myself with every assignment and class. I not only met it but exceeded it time and again. I LOVED ALL OF IT! The learning, the challenges, the classes, the professors, and the history of Guilford. It was all perfect. Guilford College brought out the best in me. I found myself speaking in front of people, leading others, and changing lives, including my own. For the first time in my life, I felt smart, and my grades reflected that. I graduated with honors.
At the beginning of my fourth year at Guilford, I applied to the Elon School of Law in Greensboro and was accepted. I was even given a pretty decent scholarship. Not to say that law school was a breeze, but Guilford College gave me all the tools I needed to succeed. I graduated in the top half of my class, and I passed the bar exam on the first try. I am now the proud owner and solo practitioner of the Women’s Legal Advocacy Center of the Triad in Greensboro, N.C.

The greatest gift Guilford gave me was the ability to see my own self-worth and value by giving me opportunities to do and be my best. We never know what we are capable of until we are challenged. I learned that anything is possible with hard work and the support from those who believe in you. Guilford College is more than just a liberal arts institution, it is a transformative power to the lives of those fortunate enough to be called Guilfordians.
