“I tried other universities, however, I felt disconnected and I didn’t feel like part of the university. With Sofia, I feel like I am a part of a family. I decided to pursue a doctorate degree in Philosophy and Transpersonal Psychology because I know that, despite my injuries, I can still help protect people in need from a mental standpoint. My advice to current and future VA students would be to know that any dream is achievable. No matter how lost you may feel or how unattainable your dream must seem, keep going. It’s only when you stop that your dream cannot be achieved.”
