Shakira Busby, '14

Upon graduating my goal has been to obtain a job that will allow me to utilize the skills and knowledge that I’ve acquired while attending Wright State. I am currently seeking a career working with individuals on the Autism spectrum. From the time I chose Rehabilitation Services as my major, I knew that I wanted to work with individuals with developmental disabilities.

Reaching towards my dreams, growing academically, and as a person has all been made possible by Wright State University. Never in my life have I been discouraged about myself because of my disability and if I set my mind to do something I will find a way to achieve that goal which is why I decided to attend Wright State.

When I first entered college, I was not very well prepared. The challenges I ran into might have overwhelmed me if my transition coach hadn't been there to help.

Mallory Holler, '15

Originally, I was not planning to attend college. However, I visited Wright State a few times during my junior and senior year of high school because my brother (Zach) was a student here. During the visits, I met so many people with various disabilities, as well as all of the staff from ODS. I was amazed at the wide diversity of students here.

Zach Holler, '13

During my years in high school, I always said that I wanted to go to college far away from home, as is probably typical for most high school seniors. However, when I visited Wright State for the first time, I could not overlook the fact that it was one of the most accessible campuses in the country and ranked within the top 5 universities in terms of innovative and accommodative services for students with disabilities.

My choice to transfer to Wright State University has to do with the fact that I was trying to get away from my trafficker, and was able to get into Wright State. My choice to stay at Wright State has to do with finding my home.
