After spending several years in the work force after high school, I realized my career options and job satisfaction were at a dead end. I was unhappy and wanted to change my trajectory. I decided to attend school and started up at City College without much direction. I was leaning towards Biology or Business because I was told it would make the most money. But after taking my first literature class at City, I knew what I truly wanted to pursue. I have had wonderful teacher mentors such as Professor Jim Miller and Professor Kelly Mayhew, without whom I wouldn’t have the confidence I now have in achieving a degree in the Arts and Humanities. Programs like PATH help further that support, and I am truly grateful for their existence. My goal is to inspire other to pursue the same, and I would love to by a Literature teacher. Education is the most important part of my life and I would love to share that passion with others.
