everything in how to spell how to read how to count talk they all assumed because we’re in the chair you don’t have the mental capacity to do anything and I set out to prove people wrong social studies was hard for me in high school I had a hard time doing all the book quarter it was scary in high school I was scared I wasn’t gun going to graduate because I had an attitude problem and then I got my stuff together and I graduated top of my class almost I stayed in school because I need my education in order to get somewhere in life when they call my name I was so proud myself graduating from high school was the best day of my life there’s no other job like being a surgical tech and being in the O R in helping people that way that’s what appeals to me most about the job I see things from a different perspective I suppose graphic design is my interest because it’s a form of visual communication it started really young that I wanted to work in education I would go to preschool with my mom when she was teaching when I was little the job I have now I’m a welder fabricator I work with metal it’s a really fun job I actually realized when I was very young that I wanted to work with animals animals are my passion I want to go somewhere within my life I want to actually become a vet assistant when I was first getting started with the VR I wasn’t very motivated and I had a turn in paperwork to my counselor but I would love a gag to the last minute and then she told me that the harder I worked harder she’d work so I don’t think I would have done as much effort if she hadn’t hadn’t told me that it’s like job training at school you learn how to socialize stay on task and be respectful to people different for sport I met my constant and let me talk about what I wanted to do I tell you I wanted to be a barber that’s my dream I want my life she helped me with the finance or school she helped me with the finances from my tools my books she stepped right in and took care of it for me so thankful for that and the CSW program I was a plant nursery worker I worked with plants I watered them I had cared for them and I grew them my counselor helped me with things like career path choosing a career path transportation school supplies I’m inspired by the desert because of peace and beauty that you can get from it my counselor saw my artistic personality I think when I would show her the designs I was doing she would always compliment on him I used to have zero confidence now I have a lot of it my counselor helped me get dragon naturallyspeaking which is a voice recognition program for the computer and you’re able to speak into the microphone and it’ll take out your papers for you your emails your instant messages whatever you want to do they sent me to school so now I go to school and I’ll be become a certified customer service rep I don’t think I could have done it without my counsellor being there every step of the way might be air counselor did
