After years of hitting road blocks, it seemed like everything was in the way of my dream of getting a college diploma. I became used to the idea that retail management was it for me, that I would always be stuck in that routine.
After having my daughter and staying home to raise her, I decided that this was my chance to take the jump into a career that meant something to me. I did not want to get stuck back in the retail world, so I did my research to see what my options were. I checked out several colleges and made appointments to find out what possibilities for training and a career there were. AOLCC was the only one that made me feel important and at “home”. Initially, I walked into the Director’s (Dorota) office with uncertainty; however, I came out confident that this was the place for me. The college’s flexibility with attendance hours and its understanding of family life was pretty amazing.
The team at AOLCC is truly remarkable: Tara, Racheal, Hayley, Rob, Cecil, Amanda, Dorota and Michael are like nothing you will ever find at any other college. They go above and beyond to make you feel special and that you can do anything you put your mind to.
I have worked for many family-run businesses and understand the dynamics of what it’s like to work with one. AOLCC was no different in that aspect. I felt like one of the team and that my time mattered.
Thank you for all the smiles, laughter, and encouragement. I will cherish it always.
