#FirstGenDocsFeature: Meet Jamal Myrick!

“Going to college was not in my life trajectory and earning a doctoral degree DEFINITELY wasn’t on my list of things to do. It started with a Black woman who told me in my high school American History course, that I would go to college and that I had no other option. I attended Florida State University and that’s when another Black woman predicted the unforeseeable: that I would go on to earn a Master’s and Doctorate. My response was, ‘I’m not smart enough to do that.'”

“Here I am, years later and a few months away from earning my Ed.D in Higher Education Leadership and I couldn’t have written a better story!”
