Prior to attending, I was at a crossroad; I felt I needed a change, but I could not find the strength to embark on an unfamiliar path. Luckily while browsing job boards, I found a listing for computer support training. The listing caught my attention because it offered free training, as well as, a free seat for CompTIA’s A+ and Network+ exams. I immediately applied - no other schools in the area could offer both experience and vouchers without an exorbitant price tag. Little did I know, I would end up with so much more.
The 5 months I spent with Mr. Jarrell and my classmates allowed me to become A+ and Network+ certified. Something I thought would have taken me several more years of school. Furthermore, this is a location that values effort, fortitude, and grit. Everyone from Mr. Mulrooney, to my Instructor, to the Office Admins became a part of my journey and never let me give up on my dream. They understood my personal struggles and valued my persistence and focus to become the woman I envisioned. It is truly because of their faith in me that I now have a new financial outlook and a foundation to continue in the realm of cyber technology.
