My name is Lisset Kanzi. I am a wife and the mother of a 2 y.o. little boy. He is my sunshine :) I am also a FT student by day, currently attending H.A.C.C. and Penn State University in PA, simultaneously. I’m originally from Boston, but moved to PA for school. I am in the accelerated BSN program and am also taking classes toward a Social Work degree. I am halfway through in completing my pre-reqs. This semester I am taking six classes: Honors Philosophy of Religion, Algebra, Arabic 102, Pilates, Honors English 102, and Human Development Family Services.
I made a few bad decisions in high school, and I'm working extra hard to achieve my goals now in college. I have just been invited into an International Honor Society, Phi Theta Kapa, by the Dean of the college. So ladies, It Can Be Done!! We can be moms and go to school. We are in a way "SuperWomen." Although, all it really takes is a good support system and a great family bond. Eventually, I want to go back to school to get my BSW in social work and my MSN in nursing to become a Nurse Practitioner.
I am fortunate enough to have the support of my husband. I am able to go to school by day and be at home with my son afterward. My husband works 2nd shift, so he watches our son while I’m in school, then we switch when I come home. I Thank God for all of our blessings =-)
If you’d like to add me or have any questions, please let me know!
I look forward to reading everyone else's stories :)
