They get very excited when you tell them you would like to go farther than Lakeland and transfer to a university or go across the street and attend the Holden University Center to continue your degree. Another positive impact lakeland has made in my life is studying habits. In high school I had good grades and sometimes I studied and sometimes I didn 't. But now I study because I want to do phenomenal and make the dean 's list. Therefore, as a young child I would imagine what college I would attend and would I succeed. Have you ever had these same thoughts? Young adults might worry about how successful they will be in college and are they prepared for this huge task. Luckily, I don 't have to worry about that because I have wonderful professors at Lakeland Community College that will help me along the exciting

Such as your what if your mom conceived you not on the knowing basis. What if everyone was telling her not to because she was to be a single mom and that’s not a world a child should be born into, but then what if she challenged this belief that she grew up with. This then in turn affected all her choices later in life, but then vice versa what if she didn't challenge this belief and stuck with what she knew.

    I can relate to Jeffrey Gallet’s story and am not surprised by the lack in resources, time school staff utilized to actually work with him on a particular concept(s) that he struggled with, and the verbal abuse that he received, due to the learning disability(ies) that he possessed. I was inspired by his story. It moved me so much so that I desire to share my grade school story with the class.

This made it difficult for me to stay focused on the concepts being taught within my classes.…
