1. Who Am I and Where am I from?
My Name is Cherry Hogan born in Selma Alabama and raised in Marion Alabama. I am 20yrs. Old and I dropped out of school at a very young age. I have a 3yr. old son that I am taking care of by myself. I currently reside in Ellenwood, Ga. with my brother and his family. And I hope to become a productive individual one day.
2. Why do you want to attend Job Corps as opposed to a more traditional educational path?
I decided to choose the Job Corps path to help me in obtaining my G.E.D or high school diploma. Also, I feel that choosing this path I can get a trade that will help me with having a productive future. I have done some research on job Corps and I feel as though this is a better path for me than trying to obtain an education on my own. I have never been out on my own and this will help me to see life. It will also help me too grow up and make the necessary changes that I need to raise a productive son.
3. What trade do you want to take while enrolled in the job Corps program and why?
I would like to take up a trade in Health Occupations while enrolled in Job Corps. While being enrolled in this program I would like to take up Medical Assistant. Growing up in a small town I always knew I wanted to do something in the HealthCare field. Doing something that is meaningful and helping someone else to get better. But I also knew that I didn’t want to be in the hands on part of it.
4. How do you see yourself in 15 years and what goals do you plan to achieve?
In 15 years I see myself being a very productive and successful person. The reason I say this is that Jobs Corps is giving me the stepping stone that I need to start to achieve my goals. My first goal in life is to become a great parent to my son. My second goal is to become a medical assistant. By getting my education shows him no matter the obstacle you still can achieve greatness.
