Today they featured a NY Times article that was first published on 11/14/09, about a woman named Terarai (pronounced TEH-reh-rye) Trent who with only an elementary school education will receive her Ph.D next month from Western Michigan University.
Please take a few minutes to read her Times story story of survival and determination here. Print it and keep it by your work area so when you feel defeated about anything you can look at this article for inspiration! You may also read about and watch her appearance on Oprah here.
Tonight I lift my glass to [the soon to be Doctor] Terarai Trent, will you join me?
