Danha Ocampo, who works full-time at a high school, was constantly telling students that they should go on to college.
“I was telling them ‘you can do it!,’ and at one point I stopped and thought that I should be listening to my own advice. How can I tell students to continue their education by going to college if I wasn’t doing it myself?”
Determined to get her degree in social work because she loves helping people, Danha chose to attend Olive-Harvey College because the class schedules were flexible and it was close to home. Juggling full-time work and part-time classes wasn’t easy, but Danha says that there was no part of her Olive-Harvey College experience that she didn’t enjoy.
