Studying at the Dominican University College is practically a family tradition for me: two of my brothers and my sister-in-law attended before I did.
Coming from a small town, I was a little intimidated by class sizes of 300 or more students at other universities. Here, however, the scale is smaller and the atmosphere welcoming. I’ve wanted to become a nurse for a very long time. And, in my opinion, my studies in theology were in no way a waste of time.
My B.A. helped me to become the person I am today, to think critically and to express myself more clearly. It helped prepare me to take the next step: nursing studies. I also developed friendships with many of my classmates and teachers that I believe will last over time.

Intellectually and personally, I have often imposed false limits on myself. Thanks to my studies here, I have overcome them to a large extent.
I came to understand that I am much more capable than I believed.
This improved my self-confidence so much that I am now able to express myself in public with greater ease. And I’ve learned to think before acting–something that is sometimes lacking in our society.
I received the Annie Coulombe Scholarship, and this allowed me to really focus on my studies. I had the great pleasure of meeting my benefactor, Ms. Coulombe, and of thanking her in person. I hope there will be many more such meetings for others. Will you be the next person to endow a scholarship in your name?
