"I took an unorthodox path at Hancock. I went from failing out of school to returning a few years later to earn a 4.0 GPA and being accepted into UCLA. Sometimes I can't believe where I am today considering everything I have faced. I know I would have never made it this far without my family and the amazing faculty and staff at Hancock."
