Ms. Dove learned about the Zell Miller Grant from Marchelle Sandoval, the Transition Specialist at Athens Technical College.
With the financial assistance, she was able to qualify for and pass the State Board Cosmetology Licensing exam.
“I hope one day to own my own business,” said Dove, who also took advantage of the HOPE Grant in the spring of 2014 and the summer of 2015. “I want to give back to my community by offering self-made wigs for cancer patients.”
Dove plans to work in a hair salon and, “sharpen her skills” after graduation. She advises others to craft a solid plan for their future. Quoting Carl Rogers, Dove says, “The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.”
