"I’m one of the few that are given the opportunity to get my bachelor’s degree debt free and not have to worry about the financial burden, financial stress and be able to make everyone proud. To know that I have people that I can turn to and that are supporting me and rooting for me means a lot."

"No matter where you come from, no matter your past, no matter your obstacles in front of you, you're able to do anything in this life. As long as you believe in yourself, and people believe in you, and that's what Mercy University did for me."

"Representation is everything. When you see other people that look like you doing things, then you start believing that you are also able to do them. And it’s really hard when you don’t have that representation to imagine what you can achieve. We have to step up to the plate and make sure that we are giving the students what they deserve."
