Alyssa Dodds was a high school dropout at 16. She didn’t feel challenged or motivated, and after an administrator suggested she stay enrolled so as not to ruin the school’s “numbers,” she walked out.
Eventually she earned a GED, working two jobs on the way to a degree from the University of Oregon. She says, “It was really good to go to college and reinvigorate my love for learning.”
