A 17-year-old girl named Hannah Pearson is on set to become a licensed teacher as she bagged an Associate Degree in Arts at Robeson Community College, United States.
Hannah Pearson is a college student from Robeson County, North Carolina. She bagged her associate’s degree in arts at Robeson Community College, United States, the same year she earned her high school diploma.
Hannah earned her diploma at Fairmont High School, North Carolina. At her young age, she is already enrolled in the University of North Carolina, Pembroke with the hopes of graduating by 19 years old.
She is majoring in Elementary education at the university. Hannah graduated at the top of her class as the valedictorian and was the only student from Fairmont High School to earn an associate degree upon graduation.
Hannah said she is pursuing a career in education because she loves to learn new information and explore many things. She added that she is also pursuing a career as she wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps.
She stated that her mother who works as a teacher inspired her as a kid to enter education, work hard, persevere, and demonstrate excellence in everything she does.
“She has been a teacher for 28 years, Growing up, I always saw how devoted she was to helping the kids and I took a job shadowing opportunity back in 8th grade when I went to Green Grove Elementary school and acted as a teacher assistant for a class of kindergartner, I just loved that experience,” she said.

Hannah was able to bag a degree and graduate high school at the same time through North Carolina’s Career and College Promise Program (CCP). This program offers free education, making it really affordable for students like her.
”Starting high school, I actually had this goal, that before I graduated high school, I wanted to graduate with at least 60 college credits, so just knowing how much it would push me further in life, how much it could advance me, that’s what made me want to take those college classes,” she explained.
The Career and college promise initiative allows high school students in Robeson County to earn college credits for free at Robeson Community College. With this program, she managed to pile up an impressive 60 college credits.
“I believe you can do anything you put your mind to. It doesn’t matter how well the next person does it. The only thing that matters is you and your drive,” she said.
Hannah’s mother Miranda McNair, who has been a teacher at Fairmont High School for 28 years stated that she is proud of how far her daughter has achieved her goals.
“She is self-driven. Even into foreign languages. She says oh, I want to learn a new language, so she’ll learn Korean, learn Spanish, and learn Portuguese,” Miranda said.
Hannah mentioned that she already has a game plan in place for when she graduates from the University of North Carolina.“I’m really looking at teaching kindergarten or first grade, and if not those two age groups, then I’m looking at fifth-grade math,” she said.
Advising high school students, Hannah told them to persist without ceasing, encouraging them to chase their dreams with maximum determination. She added that they should remain focused and always have a positive mindset toward achieving their goal.
“I would say to never give up, continue to chase your dreams as long as you do the best you can do, nothing else matters,” Hannah said. ”If you have a goal, set your goal and go for it, because you can do it, you can do anything that you put your mind to,” she added.
