After high school I went to college to pursue my degree. I was accepted at Monroe Community College where I studied one year of fine arts and am continuing my studies in graphic designs.
When I first started thinking about college it was overwhelming, but having a Mentor like Ms. Garcia close by really helped. I knew I could talk to her and she wouldn’t laugh if I said something that I wasn’t sure about.
The programs that PRYD / Ibero Youth Services did at Monroe High School really helped me learn a lot. I learned a lot of valuable life lessons and learned how to make friends.
I have many friends at MCC and I have what it takes to make it through everyday. Having Ms. Garcia and the rest of the staff there supporting me felt really good in high school and looking back it’s helping me now as I continue to study and figure out my future.
