Khadijah, GA

Criminal Justice

Khadijah is pursuing a degree in Criminal Justice and plans to attend law school. “Life is full of challenges,” she says, “However, having lived through domestic abuse and raised myself above its circumstances renews my vision every day.” As a proud mother of three children she says,

“My desire is to set an example for my children and grandchildren to follow.”

Along with completing her bachelor's, pursuing her Juris Doctorate will allow her "to complete a calling of service to individuals that oftentimes fall through the cracks of society—those who are poor, handicapped, seniors, children with special needs and the terminally ill."
