Bramson ORT led me to a Golden Path!
"Why did I become a college student? After being employed at my former job for a decade, I was laid off. I was hurt, scared, and confused, and I didn’t know how I would be able to survive without a steady income.
It has always been a dream of mine to further my education. Education has always been, and remains, one of the key values in my family. I wanted to convey the importance of education to my children, without being a hypocrite. Though I would be receiving unemployment benefits, I knew this would give me the opportunity pursue my long time dream of obtaining a college degree. What better way to set an example for my family than to show them that I could earn a college degree while being a mother, babysitter, and household manager? Yes, women wrote the book on multitasking! I knew that pursuing a college degree would be a challenge, and that it would take a lot of hard work, but I believed in myself!
I began researching two-year colleges and learned about Bramson ORT College. The
small class sizes, diverse student body, and hands-on training caught my attention. Having been out of school for a long period of time, I knew I would need some encouragement and individualized help from my instructors. Their support was wonderful and gave me the positive boost I needed.
I enrolled in the Medical Assistant Associate Degree Program at Bramson ORT College. I knew that because of the tremendous growth in the health service industry, I would have a better chance of being employed in this field. In less than two years, I landed my dream job as a Medical Assistant!
Through this life changing experience, I’ve learned that you should always aspire to achieve your goals, no matter what obstacles may get in your way. Never stop believing in yourself. With perseverance and hard work, “YOU” can make it happen! If you believe in your dreams and work hard towards your goals, doors will open up in ways you’d never have imagined. I believed, achieved, and succeeded, and you can too!"
