"I proved I could do more than people expected of me. That's what my success is."
Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at age one, Amanda Schultz has not allowed her disability to keep her from achieving her educational goals. She has persistently returned to Triton for classes on and off over the past 13 years and has taken advantage of every opportunity to succeed. She currently holds an Associate's degree in general studies, is pursuing a certificate in medical billing and coding as a potential career, and has hopes to attend a four-year university to eventually earn her bachelor's degree.
During her time at Triton, Schultz has utilized the college's Math center for tutoring, as well as the Center for Access and Accommodative Services which supports students who have a medical, physical, sensory or learning disability. "Knowing that I had that extra help available is what kept me going and helped me achieve success."
