At first I took classes at Shippensburg, but the school wasn’t right for me so I came back to Philly because I had already went to the school [Community College of Philadelphia] before. When I was in 11th grade, I took CCP’s dual enrollment program.  My major here is Business—it was Psychology, but my high school counselor said I have to do something I’m passionate about. I’m passionate about sports, and I want to be a sports agent one day. The business classes here align with the classes I will have to take as sports major at a four-year university.

The College has helped me be more comfortable with people outside of my race. I went to high school with a lot of black kids and I originally wasn’t cool with people outside of my race. My advice to someone who wants to come to CCP is to just come here—just do it. The College will help you find your passion.
