“The growth that you make with this program is astonishing.”
When Eriana joined One Million Degrees, she was on a mission to remove the negativity from her life that was hindering her progress towards a degree. In OMD, she saw a chance to “partake in events that could improve [herself] as a person,” and help her on her way to graduation.
As a scholar, Eriana threw herself into the workshops, development sessions, and events that OMD held. One activity that she liked particularly was speed networking, a skill that she took pride in mastering. But besides those skills, OMD provided the chance to build relationships: “My favorite moment in OMD was meeting my coach and creating a bond with her.”
With the wraparound support of OMD, Eriana graduated from Richard J. Daley College as Salutatorian, holding acceptance letters to both Dominican University and Purdue University. With an Associate’s Degree in Health Science and plans to earn her Bachelor’s, Eriana hopes to eventually own her own practice in her field of study.
