Like most seniors at Mother Seton, she earns significant financial scholarships to multiple colleges.
She chooses a Catholic university across the country.
There, she tutors other Pre-Med students in Mathematics to make extra money (thank you, Mother Seton) and volunteers once a week in a local children’s hospital.
One of her professors asks her if she went to an all-girls high school.
He says he can tell – she seems to have that presence about her.
The young woman may be away from home for the first time, but she isn’t at college to ‘find’ herself like so many of her new friends.
She isn’t lost.
More than a mere piece of paper, her diploma from Mother Seton is a compass by which to navigate her dreams.
Confident and focused, she knows where she is going.
