🌟✨Lee la inspiradora historia de éxito de Mariela a continuación y únete a nosotros mientras nos unimos para marcar la diferencia! 💖

Mariela, estudiante de ESL en Lone Star College. Inscrita en el Programa de Jóvenes Adultos Aspirantes (AYA) de GRADcafé. Su asesora de GRADcafé es Rosalina.

Yo llegué a este país hace 5 años y desde entonces dejé de estudiar, vengo de Mexico y allá estaba estudiando una Ingeniería entonces quería retomar aquí mis estudios, buscando información conocí este programa, AYA, en el cual me ayudaron a buscar becas y escuelas donde pudiera seguir. Estoy estudiando ESL en Lone Star College después quiero entrar a un Associate en Contaduría.
 
Este programa ah impactado de una gran manera porque me motivaron y dieron las herramientas para retomar mis estudios lo cual era muy complicado para mi en este país, ya que no tenía conocimiento de muchas cosas que se necesitan para entrar a una Universidad. Ahora tengo metas más claras y me siento más confiada en que voy a concretarlas.

Marcie's Success Story

 

 

🪻🌸Mark your calendars! Our 5th Annual State of the Center Luncheon is approaching, and it's an opportunity to create an impact in your community! Join us in supporting programs that uplift incredible people like Marcie. 💪✨. 
 
🌟✨Read Marcie's inspiring success story below and join us as we come together to make a difference! 💖
 
Marcie, an adult learner enrolled in the Phlebotomy Certification program at Lee College, Baytown. 
Marcie is an adult learner who came into GRADcafé Baytown seeking assistance with her FAFSA application because she wanted to start a phlebotomy certification program at Lee College. She was interested in going back to school after having to put her higher education plans on hold due to getting pregnant with her first child. She was finally about to get back on track and decided that she needed her FAFSA completed to start her certification in 2023. She then came back a week later seeking assistance because she was not working at the time and needed to figure out how to pay for her class materials. We were able to recommend her to WorkForce Solutions where we hope she was able to find assistance. She will be starting her phlebotomy certification program in early 2023. (Currently enrolled).
Marcie spoke on the services she received from us, “It was very helpful, and I enjoyed the services I received. I would definitely recommend y’all to anyone that needs help with college and career exploration.” – Marcie
