Two and a half years ago my daughter came to me and said that she was going back to school. She went to Community College to take her Continuing Care course. I was so proud of her; that is what inspired me to go back to school.
So last year in February I called the Adult Learning Network to make an appointment. I came down for an assessment and got started right away. I was so nervous and scared; I was starting from scratch. I found it hard; I was going to give up a few times, but my daughter wouldn’t let me. She said, “I am going to tell you Mom, what you always told me: “Go to school and get your education.”
So I stayed with it and I am so glad I did, because right now the math that I am doing, I didn’t think I’d ever be able to do. I want this so bad, just to show my family I can do it. You’re never too old!
In September, after I get done here, I want to go to Community College for my levels 3 and 4. After that, my dream is to take my Continuing Care course and work with disabled adults. I’ve always wanted to help people; that’s my job to fulfill my dream.
