I’m a struggling single mom who will be entering college for the first time after graduating high school over 13 years ago. I’ve come to realize how important education is for my future.
As I begin my new journey at Baker College, I have set some goals for myself for the next 10 years. I have confidence in myself that I’ll reach my dreams if I put my heart into it.
My first goal is to achieve my dental assistant certificate. Once I get my foot in the door of an employer I intend to go back to become a dentist.
I believe that taking care of your oral hygiene is extremely significant. But with the health care costs going up in this economy, not everyone can afford to keep up with the dental work. So as i graduate and become a dentist, I’d open up a local clinic to provide affordable dental service to my community.
Growing up as a lower class citizen and struggling all 30 years of my life, I don’t want anyone to not be able to afford something that will make them healthier. Those are my future goals that I’ve set in my mind.
