Becoming an Olympian is a pretty major dream come true. It happened for my niece Rebekah Bradford Plath, who speed skated in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
It takes courage and stamina to make dreams come true, and Rebekah had enough mojo left after the Olympic Games to make another dream come true...the completion of her bachelor's degree.
Rebekah shares her story with us in How Olympian Rebekah Bradford Plath Finished Her Degree Online.
Congrats, Rebekah! And thanks for being such a wonderful inspiration to people of all ages who have kept a college dream alive.
