“It’s been a lot of work and I made it”

Sabrina B. will start her externship next week at a local pediatric office. “My goal is to work in a pediatric office after I graduate and I’m excited that I get to work in one on my externship,” said Sabrina. “I’m nervous and excited and glad that I’m almost done. It’s been a lot of work and I made it.”

Sabrina is in the Certificate in Medical Assistant program and will be the first in her family to graduate from college. What’s motivated Sabrina to be successful is her two children. “I came to Charter College when I was pregnant with my second child. I just knew that I had to do it. I want to be somebody.”

Her advice e for new students is to stay focused. “Stuff happens and your life may affect school but get through it. It will all be worth it in the end.”
