Overcoming Addiction

Tunette Powell grew up surrounded by addiction, where her father's addiction to crack cocaine shaped her life in many ways.

Twenty-six year old Tunette Powell has overcome the odds she was dealt from birth, and she just graduated from the University of Nebraska-Omaha's School of Communication. According to, she is the first female in her family to graduate from college.

Powell said, "To graduate it will be sad, happy, a humbling experience, and it will also be turning a next page for me and I'm excited about that." Her father was addicted to crack cocaine before she was even born, and she was kicked out of school as a youth. In college, Powell became the first national champion from UNO at the nation's oldest speech contest. Her speech was about the criminalization of addiction and how it affected her life. She hopes to become a motivational speaker for at-risk youth and kids who have been abused.

Powell said, "For me, graduating will be showing everyone that you can turn your tests into testimonies."
