Overcoming Challenges

Laurie Anderson

SER Early Head Start Parent

Laurie Anderson is a current SER Early Head Start Parent. She came into the program as a very hard working and extremely shy young lady. However within weeks of participating in the program and with help of our Parent Coach (Dr. Yolanda Wilder) she had overcame her insecurities and is now very active in the program. Ms. Anderson participated in the SER STEM Robotics and won  3rd place in the competition. She has demonstrated that you can triumph over anything when you put your mind to it. Through the dedicated and loving support of the SER EHS Team parents like Laurie Anderson will continue to thrive.

“Growing up in Pleasant Grove trying to overcome statistics, it’s hard. I have always worked hard no matter what I do. I’m a teen parent, was a high school drop out. None of this defines me. SER EHS has shown me no matter what the circumstances you can overcome. Recently I came across the opportunity to work with SER and STEM programs. The education and encouragement given to me has pushed my drive to attend college.”
