My job was to be the site project manager, design, supervise the installation, test the system, and turn it over to the installation commander, then move to another location. This job paid very well but it had its drawbacks, such as always traveling, only seeing my house for one weekend a month. Along with the individuals that I worked with, subordinates, peers, and supervisors alike, were always looking to blame everyone else for any issues that came up.

When deciding what degree I wanted to obtain my wife asked if I was going to advance my Electronic degree, I told her that I was done with that field. I thought about becoming a Pharmacist, I went to different businesses and talked with Pharmacist that was on duty, I talked with the University about the degree. I missed the beginning of one semester and my wife asked if that is what I truly wanted to do and asked “you don’t like taking medication, so why are you going to issue it out?” I realized that was not what I wanted to do, so I looked

Early last summer, I was on my way to becoming a high school senior. This was one of the most exciting transitions of my high school career. My best friend Modolyne and I always told ourselves senior year must be epic, I mean it’s our last year, right? So, this meant we were participating in all school activities - which wasn’t free. My senior year spending was well over a thousand dollars. Together, we decided to apply to a local Chick-fil-A in hopes of getting a job. I felt anxious towards applying, I’ve never been on a register before and I feared being rejected. Days past after applying and I grew sad. The self-fulfilling prophecy of me not landing the job was slowly echoing in my mind day after day. I woke up one gloomy morning, telling myself to forget about
I decided in 2008 I wanted to go back to school because of a traumatic EMS call that made me realize I could not rely on being a paramedic for the rest of my life. I set out to graduate in four years. December of 2012 was when I wanted to graduate. And I was on the right track. However, along with my life changes this goal had to be altered. With a failed marriage and losing weight I looked into joining the Air Force. I also started talking with a Department of Public Safety recruiter. I wanted out of EMS so back I was willing to settle for less than my dream of becoming a Game Warden. I was accepted to both departments. After talking to by DPS recruiter I decided this was the perfect opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream. So in 2012 instead of graduating college I joined the Air Force. In joining the Air Force it did delay my graduation; however I am better qualified for my future. When I began my college career the military was not an option. The information was always there but the ability to join was not mainly due to me being too large. Although I am four years late in graduating from my original goal, I would not change a thing about the choices I have
I was grateful to obtain a higher paying job and I signed a lease for my off-campus apartment, and with those new responsibilities tied into everything I had to do for summer school it took a tole on my stress level and sleep. I was granted the higher paying job before spring semester finally ended, and I really did need that job to help me with providing for myself. My mother is on disability and she cannot help me as much as she wants to with the things that I need, and I would rather provide for myself so that I would not be a burden to her or anyone else. With this in mind, my new job was set in place to help me pay for food, rent, and other necessities during the summer months until school started again. My job called for a lot of extra attention with what I had to do for the job, so it was like taking on another class, and that is where the stress kicked in. I wanted to put my best foot forward with everything that I had set up for myself, which meant that I did not intend to put education on the waist side and I tried not to push myself too hard with my job. It seemed like that plan was able to be accomplished, but at the end everything just became too

I attend a post-secondary institution right after high school; I received my Medical Assistance Certification from Star Technical Institute in Whitehall, PA.

I found a job that I have been at for twenty years now. Ten years ago I met my current wife; she had put herself through college and was proud of her accomplishment. Throughout our marriage she would encourage me go back to school and complete a degree for myself.

I have been working for the same company for 16 years, I really like my job. The pay is good, the benefits are incredible but there is no other positions available for me to move up. One option for me was to look for another job but my family depends on me financially. I’m the only income and having kids and insurance being so high out of pocket I just can’t afford it. I know that I can get a better job but the fear of me not making it, or not being hired right away is holding me back.

Going back to school would bring me more bills but thinking
Growing up in a country where educational preferences were given to boys, my father went against the society norms and encouraged me to get higher education. Along with his guidance and my thirst for knowledge I was accepted in engineering program. I was happily pursuing my degree, when suddenly all this came to halt; my father was seriously ill. He wanted me to get married before he leaves this world. Few weeks later, I met my husband, who at the time was visiting Pakistan for his cousin’s wedding and within months I was married. I came to United States with a hope of better future and dreams of finishing my education, but was unable to do so as I was expecting our first child and had no one to help us with the baby.

Numerous times I brought home admission forms from CCBC but started to doubt myself if I was going to be able to do restart after such a big gap? I started volunteering at my daughter’s school and was soon hired as a teacher’s helper to assist with children with special needs. While working at school, I was again in an environment that reminded and encouraged me to fulfill my lost dreams. In 2012, I enrolled at CCBC with no career path in mind: I just wanted start again! Once I started I never looked back and I will continue to thrive.
Although I accepted the job offer that my old boss extended my way I didn’t think that I’d be in retail sales for any long period of time. I thought that it was the best decision I had especially being unemployed since moving home. In making the decision to go back into retail sales it got my parents off my back about finding a job and it also got me out of the house for a couple hours a day. At the time I was okay with going back into retail sales but I wasn't planning on it being longer term what so ever.
