MSMOL Student Success

Tirzah's motivation to get her degree was driven by a fear of comparison to her coworkers. Her message, above all else, is to overcome fear in order to reap professional and personal rewards. As a first-generation college graduate, she now emphasizes the importance of education with her own children. Chasing a dream to become the CEO of her own non-profit, she connected most with the pillar of "Community" at Albertus, being a part of something greater than yourself.

"I am the first college graduate within my family, and that has changed me. I now have everyday conversations with my children about going to college, what they want to be when they grow up, and the importance of education."

Tirzah completed a bachelor’s degree with a double major in Business and Sociology with a concentration in Social Work, and a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership.
