Eliana Tardio – Communications and Media

What is the biggest challenge you have faced and how did you overcome it?
I would say it is hard to adapt to the new culture as an immigrant in this country. People like me have to work hard to show their value. In my case, I decided to go back to school and graduate for the second time because I knew I was never going to be successful without a degree in the U.S. Many times, we have to be strong enough to repeat things twice to be sure people understand our accent and recognize we have something important to say. However, I couldn’t be more grateful and more proud every step of the way. Every challenge gives us the possibility to become stronger and wiser, and I would say I am happy to be where I am today. Nothing would have been possible without every good and challenging thing in my life.

What does receiving a degree at Hodges mean to you?
It means a lot. It means everything is possible when we are determined to achieve our dreams. It means everyone can do it at any age and under any circumstance, and it means the American dream is for real when we are determined to follow the right steps and commit to changing our lives for good.

What is one piece of advice you would give to students who are considering Hodges University?
I would tell them that choosing the right career is always an opportunity to grow as an individual because you don’t feel forced to complete a lesson or a class. Instead, you feel inspired and motivated to expand your personal abilities and be creative, to be your own boss, and to make the change you want to see happening in the world. Getting a degree is not about the title. It is about the knowledge that transforms you so you can become a better person.
