Being able to say I finally love my life feels amazing.
I will be 30 years old in April and in the past have felt like I haven’t accomplished much in my life besides party and take life for-granted. Since September 2017, when I made the decision to come back to school, I realized that was the first step I needed to take to feel great about myself again. I feel like I am actually doing something with my life now and have found myself, even though I still have my bad days – I always try to think positive and do the best that I can.
I came back to school aiming to get my upgrading done so I could take the Office Administration Program and so far I have succeed; and I’m excited to say that in April 2020 I will be done my program.
It has been a real struggle for me since I was out of school for so long before deciding to come back and also did the majority of my upgrading while I was pregnant with my son; who was born in July 2018.
GPRC made me a different but better person; someone who is more positive and keeps trying no matter how hard it is. I know for a fact I would not have come this far if it was not for my amazing instructors who stood by me and helped me as much as they could. I am so grateful that I got a chance to meet all the amazing people that work at the college to help all the students make their careers possible.
Becoming a Student Ambassador has also improved my outlook on life and my GPRC experience. I love that it has made me grow as a person and keeps giving me so many new experiences. I love giving my time to volunteer and help others, not only is it a great feeling but it is also so much fun.
With all this being said, when I turn 30 in April, I will feel like I have accomplished so many things in such a short period of time. Walking through the college doors back in 2017 made my life change for the better and I could not be happier. Being a student at GPRC helped me in so many ways and I feel like I have now done something with my life. I have so many plans for my future and now with me achieving my goals and having it just about completed, I feel so good about the life I can give myself as well as my children.
I was so afraid to turn 30 and have nothing to look forward to but now I can say that turning 30 will be the best year of my life and I would not change it for anything…because I love my life!
