DECEMBER ALUMNAE SPOTLIGHT
Tamica Lee, Mac of 1997
In what ways did your Ursuline education prepare you for the work you’re doing now?
Ursuline has always been my home away from home. It’s never felt like just “school” to me. My teachers were always there to motivate and support me. I struggled with my studies in the beginning, but I worked hard and Ursuline steered me in the right direction, helping me find my strong points and supporting me along the way. The foundation created at Ursuline helped me not only in college, but in my career.
Please describe the most significant value you learned from Ursuline Academy.
Confidence. Ursuline instilled the confidence in me to keep pushing and to go after whatever I wanted. I am successful in my life as a wife, mother, business partner, and in my television career because of confidence.
Describe Ursuline in one word. Explain.
Legacy. I am so proud of Ursuline! I can’t wait for my daughter to attend!
