“Everyone has a different reason why they want to go back to school. For Ann, it was about needing to stop procrastinating and provide a change for herself. “I’m tired of doing the same old thing, I’m getting older and time is passing by. I need to do something positive with my life, especially now that I have grandchildren I want to set a good example for them.” Ann wants to pursue entrepreneurship after graduation.”
Antoinette “Ann” Reese (student)
