Bel-Rea Graduate Testimonials
"During my first quarter, not only did I separate from my now ex-husband, but my best friend had passed away. I had A's in all of my classes, but started failing my exams and not doing my homework. I didn't think I would make it through, but because of how small the classes are, I made many friends that helped me through that difficult time and I passed my first quarter with two A's and a B. After that, I realized how strong I really was. I realized I had support from my friends, and that my instructors saw potential in me that I never knew was there. I gained confidence, and felt strong and empowered to do anything I wanted. I discovered the drive to not just attend school, but to utilize my new confidence to tutor and encourage other students who needed help through a position as a Teachers' Assistant!
There is a huge support system at Bel-Rea. Not only do I have very close friends that help me, but my teachers and the staff are there every step of the way to show me the potential I have and I couldn't be more grateful.
I can't say I have overcome the hardest of my obstacles, but I want everyone to know that you can be a single parent, have no parental support, have a job, and maintain a great GPA. It is difficult, but it is not impossible. YOU CAN DO IT TOO! Keep your goal in sight, learn to prioritize, and never give up. You have so much potential to be the best you can be."
