I've been working in an accounting office for 15 years, but after careful consideration and realizing that with this diploma I have more options, I've decided to pursue a different career. I believe that helping others is one of the most important things in life. I also would like to volunteer and show young teen moms that they can still graduate from high school even while at home with their babies. I want them to know that teen pregnancy doesn't have to end their pursuit of an education and career and they can reach high and accomplish their dreams.
I liked knowing that when you're done you have the skills and knowledge to move on to higher education and a better job.
