This week I decided to ask some kids about their future goals and how we as a community can help them. Each provided some feedback. If you or someone you know can answer the call to encourage or mentor them, please email email@example.com so that you may connect. (I love these babies so I will be verifying you are on the up and up, PS. It is firstname.lastname@example.org no spelling error)
My name is Jayda Nix and I am a junior in high school. I am 16 years old. When I graduate high school my goal is to attend a HBCU of my choice, preferably Tennessee State University or North Carolina A&T University. I want to enter into the medical field and either become a labor and delivery nurse or a neonatal nurse. My goal in life is to help people. Someone could offer me support by accepting what I want to do with my future plans and encouraging me to stay on a positive path to get there.
Hello, my name is Tania Clark. I am 17 years old and I am a senior in high school. After, I graduate in the spring of 2016 I plan to further my education. I plan on going away to school to either study forensics accounting or business marketing. I may go on to study both. I want to pursue a career were I am financially comfortable. I do not wish to stay in Cleveland so I will probably live in Canada somewhere family oriented and cozy. All my life I have had support behind me telling me I will succeed, and go far but support from the outside world would be just motivation and positive thoughts. Negative thoughts and energy have always made me feel negative. I cannot stand a person that always points out the negative in hopes of failure. I have always had a positive heart and tried to see the bright side in every occasion. I am that friend that everyone can depend on to lift their spirits and I feel as if everyone should have some sort of support behind them whether its family, friends or strangers from the outside looking in.
