Keyshia Roberson

My name is Lakeshia Roberson and I am 27 years old. I currently work for an engineering firm as a project administrator. I have been with the company for four years. I currently attend Lamar University’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling Master’s program. Never in a million years did I think I would have made it this far because I started going to college late and worked full time. I realized I wanted to go to college while working at an insurance company. I was 21 years old when I realized I wanted more out of life. My dream job was to become a psychologist, and since I was getting a late start at the age of 21 and working full-time, I knew this would be hard. But I pulled it together and found a university that would accommodate my work schedule and allow me to earn my degree.

Once I became close to graduating, I had to search for a master’s program that would also allow me to work full time and go to school, which was a challenge. After emailing numerous schools and being told that they didn’t have anything that would fit my program criteria, I gave up until that one day something told me to give it another try. After searching the internet again, Lamar University popped up with a 100 percent clinical mental health counseling online program. I was in disbelief and called the school immediately to confirm that this program was online, and indeed it was. I have been going to Lamar for five months and I don’t regret applying.
