“After obtaining my associate degree, I plan to attend Old Dominion University or Virginia Commonwealth University to earn a bachelor’s degree in accounting. I aspire to become a CPA. As a part-time Person Care Aid, I also want to attend nursing school for my RN license.”

“Other attempts at school were derailed and I am finally in a position where I have the chance to complete my education or further continue it. I hope to lead my own team one day or run a department in cyber security. Technology is going to get more advanced and pathways to break into peoples computers or gaining access to unauthorized areas is going to be an issue. The further I educate myself and further I hone my skills, the more protected the people around me will be.”
