My decision to attend Western Piedmont Community College was based on proximity, cost, and uncertainty in terms of career path. Courses, such as American Government and Principles of Microeconomics made me realize that I would like to go into policymaking because I want to be able to help people.

Since leadership qualities are necessary for a career in policymaking, so I have been working hard to be a leader at WPCC. I was asked to represent the student body and serve as the SGA President and gladly stepped up and took on the position. I enjoy serving the student body whether it is serving hot chocolate on a cold winter day, welcoming students back at the beginning of the semester with a slice of pizza, popping popcorn during a film festival, or being a part of the Fall Festival and Spring Fling. I enjoy the small things as much as assisting with the grand events.

I am glad I made the choice to attend my local community college and I am looking forward to the next step in my education. I plan to finish my bachelor’s degree with business management as my short-term goal and possibly something to do with law as my long-term goal. In the fall 2019 semester, I will attend Appalachian State University.
