Tiera Bailey could not survive without her planner, calendar and to-do list. Majoring in business administration at Virginia Peninsula Community College, she has many irons in the fire. Her priorities include four- and five-year-old daughters and service as a Nelson Navigator, a position that allows her to assist fellow students with the enrollment process.
A new student organization Bailey started at Virginia Peninsula called the Future Entrepreneurs Association (FEA) also occupies a lot of time. If that were not enough, Bailey plans to start cosmetology in January. "I try to stay positive and motivated because I know that I have to work hard if I want to be successful. My daughters are my biggest inspiration," she said.
"I decided to come to Virginia Peninsula so I could be more interactive with people. I like the fact that students can have our own organizations. That's why I started FEA. There are a lot of people with the same interests I have and I like to inspire other people. I feel like Virginia Peninsula helps me do that," said Bailey.
She plans to transfer to Old Dominion University to seek a bachelor's degree in business administration and aspires to own a full-service hair salon and spa. Bailey also has her sights on one day being a restaurateur.
