Degree Girl "Kedra"
Greetings! My name is Kedra Wilson. I am a resident of Bossier City, Louisiana. I am a graduate of THE Grambling State University, home of the World Famed Tiger Marching Band( iMarched). As a child I was reared by my grandmother since my mother gave birth to me at a very young age. Due to early age pregnancy my mother did not finish school, and has had a challenging life. As I attended school as a child, I had many friends who in my opinion were “living the life.” Although my grandmother provided a blessed life for me and made sure I never went without anything, I knew there were some things in life I would miss out on if I did not get an education and make something of myself. I was determined to not be a statistic! I put my all into my education and making my Grandmother proud! through hard work and dedication.
As a result, I realized that I wanted so much more out of life; therefore the inner strength and motivation helped me to further my education.. I hold a Bachelor s Degree in Early Childhood Education and teach at an amazing elementary school.. While pursuing my undergraduate degree, I became a member of two great organizations, TBSigma (Spring 2011) and AKA (Fall 2014). I will be graduating in May of 2018 with my Masters Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Grambling University.
My advice to anyone wanting more out of life is to further your education(however you see fit) and stay focused. Education has opened up so many doors for me and I’m so thankful. Some days I sit and think, “wow, I’m doing everything I use to dream of doing.” “The struggles I’m facing, the chances I’m taking sometimes may knock me down but, no I’m not breaking.” -Miley Cyrus
