It was there where she received her Bachelor's degree in Sociology, with minor specifications in Music Sound Therapy And The Arts.

White, Ph.D. Ms. Hassell always believed in the power of following one's dreams, while encouraging and empowering others to follow theirs.

According to her, "People are priceless, and our children are our greatest assets. We must invest in their futures in the most sound and ethical manner. The decisions they may when they reach adulthood will effect us when we may no longer be able to help or tend to ourselves in our senior years. When we pre-serve our youth, we are preserving our own futures as well, so let's empower them to make great decisions through utilizing critical thinking, compassion and conscientiousness.
