Journalism Program is the Harbinger for Stephanie’s Success

As a first-generation college student and a working mom, Stephanie needed assurance her educational journey was the Smart Choice for her and her family. Through several hands-on practical experiences, ICC has afforded her the opportunity to write a better future.

Passionate about writing, Stephanie enrolled in the ICC journalism program and will graduate this spring. She plans to transfer to a four-year university to pursue her bachelor's degree, and one day hopes to earn a master's degree.

She shared, "ICC helped me build the confidence I needed to continue my education, and it’s given me the flexibility to pursue my degree while also being a working mom."

During her time at ICC, Stephanie has come into her own. She has thrived as a member of Harbinger Student Media where she became editor and earned the title of managing editor by the end of her first semester.

The Harbinger has offered her invaluable real-life journalism experience and strengthened her writing skills. "It has helped me become more involved at ICC,” Stephanie said. “It has also grown my passion for helping others become more involved throughout the College and raised my awareness for ICC programs and events."

Stephanie hopes to use her knowledge and experience to help rewrite the stories of future ICC students by guiding them through their own educational journeys.

"If you have a passion for writing, then you are in the right program, at the right school," Stephanie said. "Your education is an investment in yourself and your future, an investment that will never be taken away from you."
