What is the best degree to have if you plan on opening your own mobile coffee shop? If you ask Leah Sparks, it's a marketing degree. "I chose UAH because it's a great school academically," says The UAH alumna. "But the fact that I have always wanted to open my own business was why I chose marketing." Today, she's the proud owner of Southern Girl Coffee Roasting Co. " I started this business with my Pawpaw and now every time I roast or drink coffee I get to remember him," she says. "I get to do what I love, and I also love to share it with others."
