Last year, we asked you to submit you stories to Victoria College Foundation’s “What’s Your Story?” $1,000 scholarship contest.

The winner was Jocelynn Seals from Cuero High School Seals after she submitted an essay describing her ordeal and motivation to earn the credentials for a career in the physical therapist assistant profession. She shares how she used a dark time in her life to motivate her academic desire.

It all started her sophomore year at Cuero High School.  She was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma bone cancer  after a golf ball-sized lump was removed from her abdomen.  Which was followed by a year of chemotherapy and surgeries.

Now at age 20, a healthy Seals is entering her second year in Victoria College’s Physical Therapist Assistant Program, determined to provide cancer patients the rehabilitation they need.

Seals said she felt she was starting a new life at Victoria College.

“I’m no longer ‘the girl with cancer,’ ” Seals said. “I’m just a girl trying to make a better future for myself and, possibly, my family.”
