Those first few years were not easy. “I was so homesick that I contemplated going back.” Instead, she enlisted in the United States Navy and because she already held a pharmacy degree from the Ukraine College of Pharmacy was assigned the position of general corpsman (also known as a medical specialist).

Today, 11 years after winning the green card lottery, Marianna – through hard work and dogged determination – just graduated with her doctor of pharmacy degree and is living the American Dream.
