I was most surprised by what I've gained beyond simple facts and concepts. Before I became a non-traditional college student, I spent years avoiding college. This was due to the false idea that a degree is simply a piece of paper. Through my experience at WCC, I've come to realize that the degree is much more than that. It's a symbol of all of the hard work, obstacles overcome, and skills gained during your time as a student. It's an affirmation of your ability to adapt and work through trying times.
After all, knowledge gained in the classroom is more than knowledge simply gained because it is done under pressure. In this way, we grow tougher and more resilient. That's what employers want to see. I think it's yet to come. I started a novel in this program that served as my thesis and is still in progress. If it turns out the way I hope it does, it will easily be my biggest success.

I graduated from Yonkers Middle High School in the top ten of my class, and was always an active and willing participant in both the academic and school community. I juggled a full course load of all science classes, three extracurricular clubs on campus 2 of which I was co-President of and four part time jobs! Junior year consisted of a lot of motivation… and coffee! About two months before my freshman year started, my entire world was turned upside down—on July 23, , my little brother Jimmy died from Cystic Fibrosis.
He was only 15 years old. To be honest, there were days over the course of my college career that were supposed to be happy days, but a lot of them just felt incredibly empty without my brother there. The first day of school was incredibly hard. Every time I read a book and death was involved it made me sad. All of his birthdays were so difficult to get through, especially when I was away for softball for spring training, and all of my academic award ceremonies were not the same without him there.
My graduation was extremely sad too, especially when I reflected on the fact that four years ago, he was sitting in the audience at my high school graduation. Although my brother is not physically here anymore, I try to do everything I can to the best of my ability and it's all for him.

If I did not have a full-time job, I would have kept my job as a receptionist at the Center for Safety and Change answering hotline calls for victims of domestic violence who needed help and support.
