Imunique managed to complete the nursing track through the M³ College Connections program which allows students from Milwaukee Public School to earn college credits in nursing, teaching, and general education from Milwaukee Area Technical College or the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee that could count toward their high school and college graduation.
Imunique, who was adopted by her great aunt and great uncle when she was 10-months old, said she really worked hard to succeed academically. She had to work on both her 3 to 4 college classes and high school coursework even during the pandemic.
“I work so hard because I’ve seen how people can struggle. I have seen my parents live from paycheck to paycheck and I knew that I wanted to change that narrative,” she said, according to Milwaukee Area Technical College. “I have tried to surround myself with people who inspire me and that I can inspire.”
Now that she graduated with a practical nursing diploma, Imunique hopes to continue her education to become a registered nurse or a nurse practitioner.
