Many adult learners choose to take a break from school when they have something big happening in their life such as a pregnancy or wedding. They don’t know if they can handle going to school and taking on these other responsibilities. Not Ashley Rios. In fact, Ashley Rios enrolled in the medical assistant program at Globe University-Madison East when she was seven-months pregnant with her second child.
“I knew in my heart helping people is something I felt passionate about so I decided to pursue this route,” Ashley said.
Eight weeks into her first quarter at Globe, Ashley had her baby. She submitted homework assignments and studied for finals from her hospital bed as she recovered. She didn’t skip a beat, she was determined to make a better life for her daughters and herself.
