This summer I attended summer classes and worked as often as possible. I am determined to do whatever it takes to put myself through school.
With the rising cost of attending college, it has become increasingly difficult for Rebecca DeCoteau’s family to help finance her education. Working two jobs to afford her Fitchburg State University degree, Rebecca has persevered, and continues to work towards her aspiration of attaining a doctorate in physical therapy. Citing a passion for helping others and volunteering, Rebecca has worked tirelessly for The Walk for Hunger in Boston and looks forward to working for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation as well as the Special Olympics next year.
