"You need to help, so I was like, 'Do you want a job?' I didn't even know if I could afford to pay her."

By the middle of her sophomore year in 1995, Yeskey had transferred to the University of Maryland, College Park to finish a degree in English and then later pursued a master's degree in publication design from University of Baltimore. "Once I left UMBC, that's when we started e-mailing each other and became even closer," says Yeskey.
