Only a few years ago, Mary Antwi was a certified nursing assistant and a single mother, working two jobs to support her young family. Her quest for a well-paying career led her to Wilmington University, where a student-friendly focus on flexibility allowed to keep her jobs while going to school.
Her hard work and sacrifice paid off in May, when she completed her bachelor’s degree in Cybersecurity and received three competitive job offers.
To help her evaluate the pros and cons of each position, Antwi turned to Dr. Mark Hufe, director of the Center for Cyber Security at WilmU’s College of Technology. “I didn’t know which one to choose and I am grateful to Dr. Hufe for helping me to make the right decision,” she says.
She accepted a position as an information security analyst with the Delaware Department of Technology and Information’s Chief Security Office.
“With the help of Wilmington University, I have moved from little knowledge in information technology to advanced knowledge, and I am proud that I chose the right school,” she says.
Her success has inspired Antwi to continue her education to facilitate her climb up the career ladder. She’s now pursuing her master’s degree at WilmU.
