Courage to keep going – Letter to the editor

I am so happy about the Nov. 16 article “Project Encourages Women to Continue Their Education.”

It helps me keep being motivated and continue with my professional career.

A couple of years ago, I was feeling a little depressed and kind of lost. I have had in my mind for a long time the idea of going back to school and finishing my degree. But, I didn’t know what to do in order to get the information I needed and all the paperwork organized to be able to return to school.

Luckily, I met one of the general counselors at UVU and she helped me to get in the right track. She gave me courage and assured me that everything was going to be OK and that I was going to be able to accomplish my goal even when I had to do it little by little.

I am very happy though, stressed at the same time (it is a good stress!) I have been able to finish almost three semesters. I feel great and motivated to continue until the end. It has given me a sense of fulfillment. Finally, I am doing something for me and for my own benefit. I am glad there is help out there for women who are probably feeling like I was and don’t know what to do or where to start.

Thanks for offering this help. A lot of us will be grateful for the rest of our lives.
