"I finished high school in Peru in 2004, graduated from a technical school in 2006, and at age 17 immediately got a job at a law firm in my hometown. I was in college for a year and a half when my family and I migrated to the United States for a better life. At 19, I left the idea of studying aside to focus on working. I now have three young children. I know that having a degree from this country will provide a better future for all of us. However, since I graduated from high school in another country, and over 10 years ago, I had to start again from the beginning. This was difficult for me, but the difference was that I was now in a country where your goals can be achieved if you have the motivation and dedication. I applied to NCC in 2020. With remote classes I was able to go to college and take care of my children at the same time. I work as a legal assistant as well. I was honored to be invited to be part of the honor society in my second semester. Nassau Community College has many financial aid and scholarship opportunities to help students pay for their education. As my mom always told me, "Education is the biggest investment you can make." After I graduate from Nassau, I plan to continue my education and then build a career, both for myself and my children."
My decision to attend NCC after high school stemmed from a variety of reasons. I had a lack of direction on what career to pursue, and I certainly noted the astronomical tuition costs at the schools that offered me admission. When doing my research, I noticed NCC's commitment towards its students.

I am a first-generation college student and have been paying my way through college. I had previously attended NCC because of its affordability and location. I had such good memories from my first time attending that it made sense to go back to finish my degree. People also recommended Nassau's Surgical Technology program to me because it is one of the best in the area.

Going back to school was honestly the best choice for me. As an adult student, I felt focused and goal driven because I knew the expectations of the real world. The NCC - SUNY Empire State College Multi-Award Nursing Program prepared me for my future in so many ways.

NCC was a smart choice for me because I wasn't really sure what my passion was. Nassau gave me a chance to figure it out while not having to carry the financial burden of switching my major should I want to make a change.
