#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

Mary Wilson*, 26, of Fayetteville, NC

After divorcing an abusive husband, Wilson decided it was time for a change, so she joined the work study program at Fayetteville Tech Community College. She has decided to become a dental hygienist, so she will be able to provide for her two children.

“I want them to learn that it’s never too late to accomplish their goals,” Wilson said of her children. “I want them to see that with hard work, you can accomplish anything.”

Wilson will use her funds to provide daycare for her children, so she can take more hours of class and work without having to worry about her children’s safety.
