"Hey everyone, my name is Michelle Tatosian. I’m a community college graduate, a current senior at East Stroudsburg University, and a grateful recovering addict.
I spent years in my active drug addiction, but thankfully I had the resources to get clean. After all those years spent in the dark though, I just wanted to be a good person. I wanted to help people.
So, I enrolled in North Hampton Community College. I took full advantage of every opportunity I had there. I worked hard and I was happy to. I was blessed to be alive and I refused to waste another minute of my life. I ended up graduating as the top community college student in the state of Pennsylvania and as a member of the All Pennsylvania academic team. I even won the NCC Trusty Leadership award and the NCC Liberal Arts award.
No one thought I would be where I am today, but I am so grateful and I’m constantly working on becoming a better version of myself."
