#WeSeeYou: ‘Special Needs’ Woman Graduates Law School

#WeSeeYou is BlackDoctor.org’s weekly series where we highlight those unsung heroes who are doing something awesome that needs to be shared with the world. This week we honor Melanie…

We all know that graduation is special time for a student. It marks the closing of one chapter and the opening of a new one. But for Melonie, her upcoming graduation from Law School is not only a time to shout, but to kneel down and give thanks for surviving everything she went through to get here.

Melonie became a single mom in the fall semester of her senior year of college. After experiencing domestic violence, witnessing a crime, and subsequent homelessness with her infant daughter in her last semester of college, Melonie finished her bachelor’s degree with highest honors.
