Life & Career Milestones

My path in life took a while to figure out

  • 1.

    Loved teaching and wanted to pursue a teaching career.

  • 2.

    Was first in my family to go to college and graduate.

  • 3.

    After college couldn't get a job so I ended up scooping ice cream but knew that wasn't what I wanted.

  • 4.

    Got a job recruiting for my Alma Mater and thought I could try it until I could teach.

  • 5.

    Decided I liked schools and students but maybe teaching wasn't for me.

  • 6.

    I found I hated all the travel but still loved working with students.

  • 7.

    Got a job at Hobsons teaching and training clients about technology and loved it!

Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Parents:

    You should stay here and go to community college because we can't send you to school.

  • How I responded:

    I started researching schools who were good in the major I wanted but had a lesser cost so that the price was the same as a community college. I decided to find out more on my own.

Experiences and challenges that shaped me

Click to expand

  • My family did not have money to send me to college so I researched all the schools to find the best school with the best price to reduce the cost.

  • Having Dyslexia made it harder to study and learn but always using my resources and friends to help me made a difference. I also used many strategies to study and make the material easier for me to consume.

  • I let this drive me to gain the skills to go farther than my parents in the work field. I knew education was the key to make a career out of what I love.
