Right away, I just felt at home here. It didn’t feel like a test. I felt passionate about what I was learning and passionate about helping people with this disease. To have addiction issues broken down for me in the first semester showed me what counseling is all about.

I want a job where I can use my skills at troubleshooting, and I like the variety of things we learn here, like pneumatics, hydraulics, and PLCs. We learn how all these things relate to one another. Most systems are designed to fit different technologies together, and we learn how to work with them all.

I was interested in learning more about business and maybe even getting a four-year business degree someday, so I thought if I could get the college education while still in high school, and it is a subject that interests me, there's no reason not to do it.
