What if you let your imagination lead you?

That’s exactly what this alumna did.

Kathy C-M, aka “The Crafty Chica”

left her desk job as a journalist to pursue her passion for crafting.

She was inspired to venture out on her own

After her editor encouraged her to go back to school.

By day, she hustled in the newsroom

By night, she earned her degree.

Studying business fueled Kathy’s entrepreneurial spirit

and got her thinking about new opportunities.

She transformed herself into a “creativepreneur”

With the help of her husband who taught her how to draw.

Today, this Crafty Chica shines bright!

She and her husband are co-owners of Mucho Mas, an art studio in Phoenix, AZ.

Kathy has had her product line in national and local stores.

And she’s inspired her kids to become creativepreneurs…

with businesses of their own.

Kathy shares advice in starting the journey…

“Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t live off your passion.

You just have to make a business plan for how to make money doing it.”

Thanks, Kathy, for inspiring us all to turn our passion into a profession.

Cheyenne Bostock Phoenix Feature Script

Cheyenne B. found himself homeless and jobless overnight…

but not without a calling.

While living in a shelter, he realized his true purpose —

to work for a non-profit helping others.

His journey from homelessness as a single father

to graduate student,

to motivational speaker, author and life coach

is a remarkable testament to his perseverance and selflessness.

Once back on his feet, his deep passion for service inspired him to take his education to the next level —

he earned his Master’s degree!

He chose online classes so he could continue volunteering and raising his son while in school.

His desire to help others realize their potential still drives his career today.

As a life coach, he is an accountability partner for his clients

guiding them to get focused on their goals.

Cheyenne’s message?

“Circumstances shouldn’t stop you.”

Not only is he impacting his community, but he’s also setting a good example in his own family.

[ “My father passed when I was one year old. I had a lot of influences, good and bad, mostly bad male influences around me. When I saw my son and I started to see that he looked like me, walked like me, talked like me, acted like me, I said,

“I can’t pass this on to another generation. I’m going to break this chain.”]

Thanks, Cheyenne, for inspiring us to leave a valuable legacy for our own families…

and the world!

Shortly before Marie Z. (BSB/M – 2014, MBA – 2016)

began her MBA program,

She was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.

She was 31 years old.

Marie was suddenly faced with a difficult decision:

fight her disease or earn her degree.

She decided to do BOTH.

She is now eight years cancer free.

“While I was going through my journey, I was really blessed to be able to meet mentors that were there for me. After surviving, I knew I wanted to give back.”

“Giving back really helped me to not only get inspired, but also be able to be a blessing to somebody else.”

Armed with her good health and a college degree,

she works as an advocate for individuals with cancer —

writing books and travelling the country to speak.

Keep on fighting, Marie!

(Start)

What do a cappuccino and earning a degree have in common?

They both inspired alumnus Anthony F. (AAB & BSP ’16) to create

a mobile coffee company

grounded on the belief that people should experience espresso

in a new way.

Caffio’s business model?

A fully-functional espresso bar

set on a vintage Italian farm truck.

Anthony serves up advice to current students…

“If you want to succeed…

you have to be resilient

and stay positive.”

He reminds us that like a perfectly crafted cup of coffee,

earning your degree takes dedication and passion.

Congrats, Anthony!

Round #:R1Legal:

Women only hold 28% of STEM* positions.

This is a footnote: *Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

And women of color only hold 10% of STEM positions.

Alumna Kesha W. (MIS, ’07) is working to factor diversity into that equation.

“When we talk about machine learning and artificial intelligence and these systems that have a major impact on people’s lives, the systems turn out to actually work better when we have diversity building those systems, and feeding data into those systems. Diversity is not just like a do good, pat myself on the back, I’ve done something nice…it actually produces better systems.”

Kesha W. created Colors of STEM to inspire young women of all cultures to choose careers in STEM fields and receive mentoring by women in STEM careers who look like them because representation matters — in the classroom and the workplace.

Thanks for helping to reprogram our perspective, Kesha!
