By thelaegotist / / In honor of International Women’s Day, University of Phoenix is celebrating a member of their 1st graduating class of 1979. At the age of 50, Muriel Duncan overcame the challenges of age, gender, and race to earn her degree from the University of Phoenix. She completed her studies while working full time mentoring young women at the Department of Corrections in Phoenix, and taking care of her husband who was on disability. Even today at the age of 88, after surviving a stroke, she is passionate about the power of education to transform lives of young women. Promoted across all of University of Phoenix’s social channels, this film by 180LA tells how Muriel worked tirelessly to reach their own potential, and how she inspires her daughter to do the same.
