Graduation Story: Ashley Ramirez Scott
We asked graduates to share their journey to graduation. Here is what Ashley Ramirez Scott (Strategic Human Resources) had to say in her own words…
My family and I will be traveling to Denver from Texas for graduation, and we are SO excited. During my 14 months at DU, I have thoroughly enjoyed taking classes through University College. During these 14 months, I have had to push myself continuously and remember what the end goal was. In late August/ early September, our area endured Hurricane Harvey, and my family was displaced for over five days, returning home to no electricity or running water. Receiving a phone call during this time to check in from my Academic Director, Pat Greer was so heartwarming. As well, I have strived to show my four children that with determination and perseverance, anything is possible. My children have witnessed many of my late nights working on assignments, especially my 4 1/2 year old who pulls up her chair to sit next to me as I type away. Maintaining my most important roles – mother and wife – professional position as Niche Lead and Multimedia Sales Consultant for the Victoria Advocate, couldn’t be done without the never-ending support of my husband.
