For a really long time, I was extremely confused on what I wanted to do with my life I worked a bunch of odd jobs(fast food,retail) those jobs never paid enough and I was tired of worrying about money and being unhappy with my career/job choice but before I go any further let me back this story up a little
I remember when I turned 18 my parents had my future pretty much planned out for me they wanted me to go to college even though that’s not what I wanted but I caved in anyway and went, at that time my major was nursing but again I was miserable with the whole college thing. I made plenty of friends and had great professors but my mind wasn’t in to it and I would of rather been somewhere else.
I started skipping classes and pretending like I had gone to school,when clearly I wasn’t going at all and I found myself lying to my parents about my education on top of that my grandmother passed away from breast cancer during that time so my mind wasn’t their anymore, it got to the point where school was no longer apart of me and I decided to leave school and find myself a job but working back in fast food didn’t last long. I was tired of making minimum wage and dealing with rude customers, I stuck it out for two years and then one day I decided school was where I needed to be.
I went to plenty of private colleges until I fell upon fortis, it was a great fit for me I loved the staff and I felt like I could get a great eduction there. I’ve always wanted to help others so when my financial advisor told me about the medical assisting program I immediately decided that’s what I wanted to do, I signed up and started classes the following month, it was a great experience and I met a lot of great people. I went on to do my externship and got hired, I now work for a great doctor at a great medical facility and I love what I do. It’s never too late to go back to school, it’s never to late to chase your dreams and never give up on what you wanna do ever.
I’m completely happy with my decision and I love the career that I’m in and eventually I plan on going back to school for nursing (RN) so look out world 🌎 cherelle is coming for you.
Remember positivity/an open mind will
Get you places!
