Essay: Tenacity by recent graduate Marisa Nowicki

Tenacity” by Marisa Nowicki (’17) – Although neither of my parents attended college, they fostered in me a deep love of learning from an early age. We would often play word games in the car, and it was during one of these car rides that my dad introduced the new word-of-the-week: “tenacity,” the quality of being determined or persistent. I’ve always liked the word, and as an adult it often reminds me how much my family has sacrificed to ensure I gained a quality education. READ MORE

Purchase with a Purpose

University of North Texas student found his calling for helping others following last year’s July 7 ambush of police officers in downtown Dallas, which left five officers dead and wounded a total of 11 people.

“The Dallas shooting was bad, but it sparked a fire in me and I’m going to let that fire shine bright,” said Ipinowula “Ipi” Adedokun, a junior majoring in finance.

Following the shooting, Adedokun wanted to help children who lost parents that night, but he didn’t know how – so he started a group in hopes it could become a nonprofit to lend him credibility. This June, just a few weeks before the one-year anniversary of the shooting, the organization – World Apparel Co. – became designated as a domestic nonprofit corporation. About half of the proceeds from online purchases of T-shirts and trendy dresses, jackets and hats goes to aid children’s charities or individual families.  READ MORE
