May 2006 marked the pinnacle of Bekka’s academic career. She received the Master’s degree in English from Southern Connecticut State University.
She wants to help young people overcome difficulties in their lives and as her research project she found out reasons why high school graduates do not do well in college writing. Because of her hard work & excellent recommendations from the faculty, she was chosen by Mitchell College in New London, Connecticut, to be the Writing Specialist for the inauguration of Thames Academy, designed to help a group 0f 30 students bridge the gap from high school to college. She will be able to use all she has learned & be stretched herself, trying to help these young people with disabilities.
