ACC has had numerous positive impacts on my life. First, let’s start with the many motivated students I’m around. When I see others working just as hard for their goals, it inspires me to keep striving for my goals. I’m a student of a second chance. I have been out of school for 8 years, but ACC has given me another opportunity to pursue my dreams. I have become an emerging leader. The skill sets that I have learned will help me go further not only through my career path, but in the community as well.
