"At the end of the first semester when I got my first transcript and I realized I was ranked number one, that's when it became my goal and I said if I can do this, then I'm going to do it," she said.
Her next long term goal is to become a speech therapist. "I plan to go to Brewton Parker for four years and then I plan to go to Valdosta State and become a speech therapist," Laura says.
