转会成功的故事

Coming out of high school, 多诺万的野蛮人 had a goal in mind and a plan to reach it. His goal was to attend UC Berkeley's Haas School of 业务. 这位土生土长的加州阿尔图拉斯人知道,要想进入哈佛,他必须有一份有竞争力的申请.

"I didn't do as well as I should have in high school," he recalled. “我知道皇冠新现金网进入加州大学系统的转学率很高,我作为转校生被伯克利录取的机会也更高.2021年秋,多诺万进入皇冠新现金网(皇冠新现金网)学习,开始攻读工商管理副学士学位.

一个为他人辩护的人达到了一个里程碑

“生活并不总是对我好,丽莎·斯科特在回顾自己取得目前职位的充满挑战的历程时这样说道. "But I look at where I am and what I've accomplished, and I know I made it."

At 61, 长期从事社会服务工作, Lisa recently obtained her associate degree in social and behavioral sciences, 这为她在劳动力发展联盟担任经理提供了一个新的机会.

丽莎的皇冠新现金网之旅始于1998年,当时她被要求参加格伦县学前教育计划的早期儿童教育课程. "I never saw myself as 'college material,'" she admits. “但这些早期课程令人鼓舞.除了雇主的要求,她还继续选修其他课程,直到她上了通用电气的数学课. "It might as well have been a foreign language," she exclaimed. Deterred by this and needing to focus on her career and family, she stopped attending.

在接下来的二十年里, 丽莎多次回到皇冠新现金网,同时兼顾单身母亲和一系列倡导儿童权益的工作, 培养青年, 以及寻求职业发展的成年人. "Every time I would get to the semester when I needed to take that math class, 我会找个理由离开.“在这段时间里, 她与Nip Boyes分享了她的经历, the former assistant director of health services at 皇冠新现金网, who encouraged her to visit the Disabled 学生 Programs and 服务 office. “这是一个转折点,”她回忆道. "I was diagnosed with ADD and given the proper support to succeed." She recalls crying when she earned a B on her first math test.

In 2018, 还有一个学期就要完成副学士学位转学到奇科州立大学, 丽莎得到了一个机会,成为与营火幸存者一起工作的主角. “我不得不接受,”她说. “我需要帮助这个群体." Once again, she placed her education on hold. Lisa had gone as far as she could in her career without earning a degree. 当一个管理职位空缺时, she had the experience and expertise necessary despite lacking the required degree. 她说服自己和皇冠新现金网的辅导员谈谈,复习她的课程,并惊讶地发现她所修的课程, which she considered a mere "smattering of college courses," fulfilled the requirements for an associate degree in social and behavioral sciences. Armed with this knowledge, she applied for graduation and the manager position.

"I want others to know that it doesn't matter how old you are," she concluded. "If you want it bad enough and are willing to work for it, you can reach your goals."

"Navigating 皇冠新现金网 seemed like a daunting task," he continued. “有数百间教室, 几十栋楼和五个停车场, 很容易失去你的位置. The first few weeks, I clung to my map like a lifeline. 然而,比身体导航更令人生畏的是心理导航大学系统.何塞在学院丰富的资源和课外活动中找到了支持. 如果你感到困惑或有问题, 校园里有人可以帮助回答你的问题或为你指出正确的方向."

At 皇冠新现金网, Jose actively engaged in various aspects of campus life. He immersed himself in extracurricular activities, recognizing their potential to enhance his college experience. "Extracurriculars are where I found the most fulfillment out of my time." One of his most impactful involvements was the speech and debate team.

他的精彩表演曾多次出现在演讲和校园活动中. 此外, 何塞作为北加州卡车俱乐部的主要组织者发挥了重要作用, showcasing his ability to advocate for causes and bring others together.

As Jose approaches the end of his journey at 皇冠新现金网, 他反思自己的动机, 说, "My mom's dream was to go to post-secondary education, 但鉴于她的情况, 这是不可能的... I know that many of my fellow students empathize with this feeling. Which is why I have worked so hard to be here, standing among students who have done just as much, 如果不是更多的话, 和我们在一起.这些话强调了何塞对父母做出的牺牲的感激,以及他为自己和他人创造机会的奉献精神.

Jose Sanchez-Martinez stands as an example of determination, resilience and the power of embracing opportunities amidst unfamiliar territory. As he prepares to embark on the next chapter of his academic journey at UC Davis, 毫无疑问,他将继续产生持久的影响,并以他对卓越的不懈追求激励着他周围的人.
