Two years ago, my husband and I became licensed foster parents. Since then, we have fostered three children and have learned a great deal from each one. Through my experiences with foster care, I was informed about the Guardian ad Litem program which is a child advocacy program. Through working with the amazing kids in foster care, I realized that I wanted to become a social worker.
Beaufort County Community College has been a wonderful stepping stone to help me achieve my goals. I chose BCCC because of its affordability and small class sizes. I am so grateful to the staff and teachers who are always willing to help when it is needed. Because of them and my own hard work, I have maintained a 3.8 GPA while volunteering as a Guardian ad Litem and fostering children. At BCCC I have utilized the mathematics lab daily and found an interest in math I never knew I had. My other favorite subject has been sociology which has reinforced my career decision. I plan to graduate in the near future with an Associates of Arts, and I am well prepared to move on to a university where I plan to pursue a degree in social work
