Nationwide -- The Education Equalizer™, Dr. Carjie Scott, reveals in her new book, You Are Accepted: How to Get Accepted into College and Life! how owning her story led her to become a first-generation college graduate who courageously stood up to workplace racism and sexism in higher education.

In the book, published by MTE Publishing and available at, Dr. Scott reveals why and how all colleges and universities must revisit their policies and procedures to ensure access and equity for all students, particularly for Black students.

“First-generation college students have unique backgrounds and experiences,” said Scott whose mom was murdered by a police officer when she was only 6-years old. Her family rallied around her to ensure she received a quality education; thereby becoming the first in her family to attend college and graduate college.

Do you Suffer From Itchy And Embarrassing Skin Patches Or Blotches?

You May Have A Condition Known As Tinea Versicolor.

  Clear Up Your Blotchy Skin With New Cream Proven To Help Get Rid Of Skin Patches Caused By Tinea Versicolor

Discover how Mizell Mais, a mother of three and entrepreneur, developed a skin creme to overcome blemishes and spots from the fugus that causes Tinea Versicolor. In her early thirties, she developed a spotty rash that covered more than 40% of her body, including her face.

Being dark-skinned, the rash was much lighter than her natural complexion, and the itchy spots were flaky and dry. The rash is called Tinea Versicolor. It's caused by an overgrowth of fungus that naturally occurs on human skin, and is most prevalent in humid or tropical climates.  To learn more about how she created her VanishClear Sulfur Cream to clear up spotty skin caused by Tinea Versicolor Click Here

Nevertheless, the tragic event changed her life forever, but Scott refused to park in the trauma and grief of growing up without her mother. So, she decided to pursue college. In 2003, she left the south side of Chicago when she was accepted at Christian Brothers University in Memphis, TN. Scott candidly shares how she struggled with imposter syndrome by being a first-generation college student.

“Students need to know they deserve to be in better spaces than what they came from,” says Dr. Scott. “My mission is to normalize self-acceptance and college acceptance for Black students.”

She feels it is her personal responsibility to ensure she is not the last in her family to graduate college while making sure other first-generation college students are not the last in their families to graduate college either.

Dr. Scott’s vision is to create an inclusive and diverse higher education work environment that reflects the student body, instead of an agency that repels or rebukes them. She tells how education will always be one of the vehicles that accelerates greatness. However, education should never be the entity that contributes to stagnation for anyone. This explains why she works relentlessly to ensure that education is not only accessible but equitable.

Dr. Scott chronicles life lessons, leadership pitfalls, and how she failed forward in her academic career that started almost two decades ago. She started out serving non-traditional students at trade schools such as ITT Technical Institute, Victory University, and Anthem College (to name a few). Scott continued to climb the higher education ladder and landed her dream job at Vanderbilt University. She went from being a director of admissions in a strip mall to landing a great position at one of the top universities in the country, Vanderbilt University. It was during her four-year tenure at the prestigious institution that Scott experienced a rude awakening, but she did not back down. Instead, she held leadership accountable to their own governing policies – the same policies employees sign off on to ensure a workplace free of inequities, racism, and sexism.

Her book, You Are Accepted: How to Get Accepted into College and Life!, is available for purchase at and Amazon.
