I attended Fortis College in Columbia, South Carolina. I majored in dental assisting.
I wanted to get in the dental field because I like helping people and I found teeth fascinating for some reason.
The Fortis education made a difference in my personal life; my sister now has gone back to school because she saw how I was in school and studying and everything so it encouraged her to go back to school.
Graduation…no one knew that I was valedictorian except my mom. I wanted to surprise everyone, so when they came and they found out they cried. They were really happy.
