In High School I would of never imagined me attending Southern Adventist University. I honestly did not think that I would attend any school over about $6000 dollars anyway. The community college in my neighborhood is where i was expected to go. It was cheap enough to where i wouldn’t have to pay a dime, close to home and nearly everyone i knew started of college there to save money. With my parents being from Haiti and not making enough money to support me in school community college was what i thought to be as the ideal school for me. Boy, was i wrong!

They wanted the best for me and did not want to limit me in any way when it comes to school. Therefore my mother then gave me the option to choose which ever school i wanted to attend.

It got me in the college mode earlier which was way better than getting into the college mode while taking all of your different classes for your traditional fall. In smart start is where i made most of my friends becuase it was a smaller amount of people so easier to talk
