I chose to get my degree in accounting in order to ensure a better life for both me and my son. At the time, I was working full-time to support us and not feeling like I was going anywhere. With the support of my then-boyfriend (now husband), I decided to return to school and get my bachelor's degree.
Since I worked full-time and had to be home to take my son to/from school and sports, I was not able to participate in any extracurricular activities at the school. I graduated in May of 2017 and my daughter was born in August. Getting my CPA license has always been in my plans, but I have not been able to start studying for it due to the cost of review courses. The Roger CPA Review Scholarship has allowed me to pursue my career goals and make my family proud.
