My first week of college at North Carolina State University was one of the most nervous and exciting times in my life.
It included everything from meeting tons of new people, decorating my dorm, finding my classes on campus, and not to mention the millions of free t-shirts I seemed to receive.
But during a time of change and unfamiliarity, things can get blurry. You’ve heard people tell you to be yourself and do your best, but let’s take that a step further.
If you attend a community college, you’re probably one of the smartest people I’ll ever meet.
Plain and simple, community colleges are awesome because they provide easy access to a better life. It can be as much or as little as you make it. Unfortunately, most community college students don’t maximize this potential.
As a first-generation college graduate, I know how important it is to use an education for a better life. The entire cycle of poverty for a family can be broken forever with easy access to education, some hard work, and a willingness to set yourself apart from the rest. It all begins with simple decisions, which seem so small now, but ultimately will change everything about you for the better.
Many revolutions have changed the world for the better. I want to start one of those. It’s something I call the “DREAM JOB REVOLUTION.”
I know, I know. It might sound a little touchy-feely, but it’s crucial.
Let’s face it. People who love their work innovate, engage and deliver. They have fun. They make a difference. So yeah, I want to see more of that.
