NEW DIRECTIONS CAREER CENTER
October 28, 2012

I am a 2011 graduate of New Directions E3 program which stands for Educate, Empower, and Elevate. This is a program set up in Collaboration with the United Way's "Women Leadership Counsel". The WLC provides a volunteer mentor to each woman participating in the E3 program. Through the E3 program I have been able to go from being basically homeless (living with my daughter), to getting set up in an apartment with a roommate and starting Columbus State Community College full time to pursue an associate of science degree in Civil Engineering. While doing this I am also employed full time as a cabinet maker for a company in Hilliard. I am now in my second year of my degree at Columbus State, have managed to win the Anne Bostwick Scholarship of 2,000.00, and have plans to transfer to Ohio State University for my Bachlor's degree in Civil engineering. After that I plan to enter an MBA program to make myself an even more well rounded and capable employee. It is my hope that I can continue with the help of New Directions programs and services, to find opportunities to help me pay for my education along the way. Right now I am an Honors student and hope to be able to continue that. New Directions Career Center's wonderful programs and staff support have given me my life back in more ways than I could ever possibly have imagined! I now volunteer as much as my schedule will permit to try and give back a piece of what has been given to me. If you have the courage to face whatever fears you may have and move forward in spite of them, then I highly recommend New Directions Career Center as your starting point.
