When Nia Berry, a sophomore majoring in education, left her hometown in Ohio for Texas Southern University, she was looking for a challenge that would prepare her for the next phase of her life. “I wanted to branch out,” Berry said. “I was afraid if I didn’t take a chance and go somewhere else I’d never leave my hometown.”

The challenges Berry found herself facing were daunting; besides managing her time and priorities Berry found it difficult to balance her financial obligations with social activities in which she wished to take part. Eventually, Berry wants to teach reading, language arts, and social studies to elementary and junior high school students, some of whom will have special needs and require unique attention.
