From grades eighth-twelfth, I’ve attended a ConnCAP Summer program for six weeks each summer.

During those six weeks I worked on material that helped me get ready for the next grade.

I didn’t want to be one of those people, and I felt that it could be a great asset to use in my other classes for the remainder of my college education. School isn’t the only aspect of my life in which this class may help me. Public speaking may also contribute to my success as a CPA (Certified Public Accountant).
My true self! This becoming myself thing started last year, but at that time i didn't have a name for it and i didn't take things seriously...i didn't take life seriously, and i tried not to care too much...
