She stated that the idea to pursue a college degree was prompted by a challenge from her grandson, who told her in high school, “I’ll do it if you do it”, adding that the competition then escalated to a grade point contest which she won.

“I have finished something I started that is absolutely amazing, and I feel amazing,” she said. Robyn and her husband own a trucking business that transports unsafe materials and government equipment.

Robyn expressed her gratitude to Southern New Hampshire University for allowing her to complete her degree in a manner consistent with running a business. She stated that she usually worked on assignments in rest areas while on the road.

“I did 90% of my studies from inside my semi-truck,” Robyn said. She mentioned that as she is clocking 64 soon, she plans to attend law school, after which she hopes to provide support to survivors of abuse.
