I have come a long way in the past five years. I am a recovering drug addict who is looking to help and make a change in the addicted community. I feel I have a lot to offer this community with my life experiences and soon to be professional experience. I plan to graduate within two to three years and join the profession of Drug and Alcohol Counseling. I will be a first generation college graduate and my family and few friends are proud that I am achieving my goal.
