“My mother wanted a better life for her children.” Priscilla Nunez’s mother did not want her children to struggle financially the same way she did in order to raise her children in the environment they grew up in. Going to college allowed Priscilla to fulfill her mother’s dream, and fueled her own ambitions as well. By receiving her college degree, she changed the trajectory of her life and her children’s lives.

College is now a given for her children, and she looks forward to allowing them a world School in 2007. She met many supportive role models in college who empowered her to step out of her comfort zone. Whether it was an obscure class or the newest club on campus, Jodi jumped in with both feet. She took advantage of all that college had to offer and she discovered her potential as a leader. She now serves as the Grants Compliance Monitor for the School District of Philadelphia.
