Danielle Sevy Recovers from Traumatic Brain Injury to Earn Degree

Danielle Sevy – CTU Wounded Warrior Scholarship Graduate, Associate of Science in General Studies

"During my second deployment to Iraq, I was pushed off a truck and I fell ten feet landing on my head. I sustained a traumatic brain injury, and along with that is all the symptoms of memory loss, cognitive skills impairment, speech impairment. I first heard about CTU wounded warriors scholarship actually in my unit. CTU faculty had come down to talk to us about the scholarship. I initially applied for this scholarship because I had just been through two years of rehabilitation, speech therapies, memory loss therapy, and I was in a pretty dark place at that point in time. I decided to take the chance and I applied. When I first got that phone call, I was shocked. I was excited, I was nervous. I, for the first time in the long time, I had something to look forward too. We had been through a lot as a family and to see something so big and bright open up for me, they were just so proud. I felt special, I honestly, just with having the support from CTU, the encouragement, the continuous “how are you doing?” “Can I do anything?” I could call and there was always someone there to answer. That helped me so much to be standing here today and to be graduating. My advice to wounded warriors thinking about going to CTU is to do it. Take that step, because that step leads to another step, and all those stepping stones lead to success. I’m Danielle Sevy, Sergeant Retired US Army, and I’m in."
