In another heartwarming story about a person's dream coming true, a homeless woman has finally completed her college degree. Emma Lopez Ruano has recently achieved a remarkable milestone by graduating from Mount San Antonio College with a degree in alcohol and drug counseling, according to Good Morning America. At the graduation ceremony, the woman who is also a mom can be seen wearing a maroon robe with a note on her head decorated with flowers.
It reads, "The message is hope. The promise is freedom." Years ago, this seemed impossible for Ruano. "I didn't think graduating college was even possible for me anymore. I have three kids who are all teenagers. My oldest is graduating high school this year, so this was something that I didn't think I could even do," she explained. Recalling her past life, the mom said, "In my 20s, I started doing drugs and I started doing really bad, making really bad choices. I kept trying to be clean and I just wasn't able to. I wasn't able to get a hold of my life and I couldn't get control back and I ended up homeless. I couldn't manage my life anymore." She also spoke about the role of counselors in getting through the course. The mother said, "With the help of counselors here at Mt. SAC, I was finally able to decide, 'Ok, I'm going to keep going and get my associates.'" Ruano has proved that it is possible for people to come out of addiction and dream of a new life.
