#includemeincollege: How One Girl’s Dream of College Changed Others’ Ways of Thinking
Tuesday, December 12, 2017 1:00:00 PM PST - 2:00:00 PM PST
Chloe Farmer knew from a young age that she wanted to go to college, and her mother, Jennifer decided she would do whatever it took to help her achieve her goals. It wasn’t easy: there were a lot of meetings, a lot of resistance, and many other obstacles. However, by learning and understanding Chloe’s rights and becoming a highly educated and staunch advocate, Jennifer paved the way for Chloe to do what she had to do to go to college. After applying to and being accepted to 3 colleges, Chloe decided on Vanderbilt, where she is today. 

Participants will learn: a) how to work with high school educators and staff to do self-determined, self-directed post-secondary planning; b) what specific goals to include in the planning, and how to work towards achieving them;
c) how to conduct a personalized college search and go through the application & admissions process; and d) making the final decision.

Jennifer Farmer
Jennifer is SUPERMOM to Chloe who has just begun her freshman year at Vanderbilt University as part of their Next Steps program. Because Chloe’s transition to and the years in high school were anywhere from complex to combative, Jennifer enrolled in a JD program and is currently in second year law. She holds a BA in Public Relations from Flagler College.
