One of the pivotal moments in Reece's journey was her involvement in 十大网赌正规平台's identity-based centers, 她在哪里当学生助理. 这些中心, 哪些庆祝多样性和包容性, 成为了里斯个人成长的催化剂. 她解释说:“我以前从未见过这样的东西. 在这些中心,我了解了其他人,扩展了我的知识,看到了社区."

反思来自十大网赌正规平台教职员工的支持, 多诺万说,他们帮助他坚持到底,达到了他的最终目标. He credits transfer counselor Doug Minton with helping him map his course schedule to meet the transfer requirements for a UC and his Phi Theta Kappa advisor Brian Donnelly with making sure he had a competitive application.

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," reflects 丽莎•斯科特 as she looks back on her challenging journey to reach her current position. “但我看看我所处的位置和我所取得的成就,我知道我做到了."

At 61, 长期从事社会服务工作, 丽莎最近获得了社会与行为科学的副学士学位, opening up a new opportunity for her as a manager at Alliance for Workforce Development.

Lisa's 十大网赌正规平台 journey began in 1998 when she was required to take early childhood education courses for her job at Glenn County Head Start. “我从来不认为自己是‘上大学的料’,”她承认. “但这些早期课程令人鼓舞." She continued taking additional courses beyond her employer's requirements until she got to her GE math class. “那还不如是外语呢,”她惊叫道. 由于受到这种情况的影响,她需要把精力集中在事业和家庭上,于是她不再去上学了.

在接下来的二十年里, Lisa returned to 十大网赌正规平台 multiple times while juggling single motherhood and a series of jobs advocating for children, 培养青年, 以及寻求职业发展的成年人. “每次到了我需要上数学课的学期, 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, 他是十大网赌正规平台前卫生服务助理主任, 是谁鼓励她去参观残疾学生项目和服务办公室的. “这是一个转折点,”她回忆道. “我被诊断出患有注意力缺陷多动症,并得到了适当的支持以取得成功.她回忆说,第一次数学考试得了B时,她哭了.

In 2018, one semester away from completing an associate degree for transfers and transferring to Chico State, Lisa was given an opportunity to move into a lead role working with survivors of the Camp Fire. “我不得不接受,”她说. “我需要帮助这个群体.她再一次搁置了学业. 丽莎在没有获得学位的情况下,已经在事业上尽了最大努力. 当一个管理职位空缺时, 尽管她没有学位,但她有必要的经验和专业知识. She convinced herself to speak with a 十大网赌正规平台 counselor to review her coursework and was surprised to learn that the courses she had taken, 她认为这些仅仅是“大学课程的皮毛”," fulfilled the requirements for an associate degree in social and behavioral sciences. 有了这些知识,她申请了毕业和经理的职位.

她总结道:“我想让别人知道,年龄并不重要。. “如果你足够渴望并愿意为之努力,你就能实现你的目标."

“在十大网赌正规平台任教似乎是一项艰巨的任务,”他接着说. “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. 最初的几个星期,我紧紧地抓着地图不放. More daunting than physically navigating, however, is mentally navigating the college system." Jose found support in the College's abundance of resources and extracurricular activities. 如果你感到困惑或有问题, there is someone on campus who can help answer your question or point you in the right direction."

何塞在十大网赌正规平台的旅程即将结束, 他反思自己的动机, 说, “我妈妈的梦想是接受高等教育, 但鉴于她的情况, 这是不可能的... 我知道我的许多同学都有同感. 所以我才这么努力地来到这里, 站在成绩同样优异的学生中间, 如果不是更多的话, 和我们在一起." These words underscore Jose's appreciation for the sacrifices made by his parents and his dedication to creating opportunities for himself and others.
