I made up my mind in 2016, that I was going to complete my AA transfer degree. I attempted
college several times, and I wasn’t successful. I entered the PACE Program in Summer
2016. I took public speaking and I got an A in the class. After completing the public
speaking class, I had the determination and drive to keep moving forward. I just took
things one semester at a time. Every semester I received a tremendous amount of support
from the PACE Program advisers. I was working full time, going to school, and supporting
my daughter through high school. I encountered several obstacles along the way. I
didn’t let that stop me, I persevered. I’m transferring to Cal State East Bay Fall
2020, to obtain my BA in Human Development/ Women’s Studies. I’m living proof that
it’s never too late to complete your educational goals.
