Degree Girl "Lakoya"
My name is Lakoya Crutch. I am a proud mother of three girls and married to a wonderful king! I am from Danville, Kentucky. I am the first in my family to get a college degree. I served in the US Army for six years. In 2015, I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice from University of Phoenix while pregnant with my third angel. In addition, I am 6 credits from receiving my Masters Degree in Public Administration from University of Phoenix.
One motto I live by is enjoy life and support each other especially women. This is one reason that I wanted to be a part of the Degree Girl Movement. Finally, even if you had a rough past, NEVER give up on your dreams. Also, never be afraid to be a leader. I was a leader by attending college and showing my family, friends, and community that college is a possible option to them. I am the trailblazer of my family and want my children to follow in my footsteps.
I am proud to be a DEGREE GIRL
