Degree Girl "Felecia"
My name is Feleicia M. Walker. I am from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I became a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority in 1997. I graduated with my B.A. in Journalism in 2000 and M.A. in Education in 2010 from University of Southern Mississippi. I had a wonderful career working for a newspaper company until technology changed the landscape. My position was eliminated and job searches were fruitless. A volunteer opportunity lead me to a new love for education. I decided to pursue a teacher certification. This was quite a challenge due to being a wife and a mom to a son with special needs; however my husband and family provided great support. Although; things did get rough, it was very important for me to continue. There will be obstacles such as health, bills, family, and friends, but the key is always remain focus as you and your education are worth it.
