GTCC has impacted my life professionally by providing me with the ambassador job, which has given me the opportunity to offset my tuition costs with a scholarship. Personally, GTCC has given me friends at school, as well as relationships with incredible professors who have helped me to be successful in my continued academic career.

Career aspirations: I have had difficulty nailing down a career path. However, my time as a swim instructor for children with autism at the Ragsdale YMCA helped me to discover my love for helping others in my community. I know that whatever I find myself doing down the road will have the theme of community service in it. GTCC has allowed me to make progress while keeping my options open as I find my passions.

If I had an opportunity to thank the donor who helped me pursue my education, I would say...

Your contribution has affected my life in such a tangible and evident way. Thank you for your selfless gift. I believe it is an investment into my future that I will strive to use to change the world around me, and one day, pass along to someone else!
