I have attempted to get my degree since my early teens. It has not been easy. Coming from a migrant family with barely enough to pay the bills has made this journey a very long one. I have been at COD since 2008 as a veteran of the U.S Army who has been paying for my tuition thanks to an injury that I acquired on duty. COD took me in and Donni (Veteran Affairs) has helped me through the whole process. She has always been there for us as veterans and has supported us.
I don't know how I'm going to complete my classes this year as I have been having transportation problems and had to cancel my last semester. But, I am hoping to finish online classes which will enable me to find a full-time job and continue finishing my degree.
