Back to School

A big life change has happened for me. I’m going back to school full time. It’s something I always wanted to do, but never thought possible.

I was raised in the foster care system and lived on my own from my 15th birthday. I put myself through 10th, 11th and 12th grades. I had two jobs and lived above a small grocery store who fed me leftovers from the deli. So, after graduation, I just needed to work and school didn’t seem to be an option.

Helping people has always been in my DNA, so I’ve decided to become a physical therapist. It goes along with the fitness lifestyle I’ve always lived and rehabilitating patients will definitely be a fulfilling career. I know it will take a lot of work, but the rewards for me personally will be so powerful.

So, I’d love to hear from other older learners out there. I’m in local community college now, knocking out the pre requisites, but there will be lots more after this. If you have any tips or pointers, then, I’m all ears. Also, send good wishes to Ace as he has to live with me while I do all this! ❌⭕️

Well done you for taking this step and learning! I am proud of you as i was classed as a mature student when i studied for my honours degree as i did not attend university after finishing my studies at sixth form college, instead opting to work to gain money snd life skills through being employed.


It wasn’t until several years later that I finally decided to study for my degree at university and the sklls that i had gained from my time working was beneficial to me at university.…

I know I’m a bit late to the celebration, but congrats on taking this step! I tutor people in similar situations as this, and I highly recommend Khan Academy if you need a bit of help in certain areas. I also saw you mentioned algebra—- there’s an awesome site called Wolfram Alpha that can show you step by step how to solve almost any equation (so you can see where you might have messed up if you miscalculate). Best of luck here at the end of the semester! I believe in you :)
