She excelled in her academics at the Berks satellite campus where she held many titles including Lion Ambassador. She then came to University Park her junior year and it was a dream come true for her. She dove into all things collegiate; classes, social life, football games, THON. But then after a year’s time, her life took a drastic change. She discovered she was pregnant.
