Allison Bellew Sousa ’08
Computer science major
Career: As a project manager for an IT company, she has the freedom to set her own hours.
Uphill climb: After her family crumbled, she grew up with her sister in three different foster families. “I truly did not want to end up anything like my parents.”
Improving her odds: “I didn’t know any high school graduates who had good job prospects, so I focused on getting an advantage with a good college degree.”
