Meet Mojahida Khazi, a woman who knows the importance of a sound education, but was surprised to discover a new subject that changed the way she looked at the world.

“By attending college and giving myself an education, I am handing myself the keys to success in life. Education has helped me develop mentally and morally. Education will help me financially by getting a good job and becoming who I want to be. Most importantly, education has helped me become a critical thinker.”

One introductory class at CCA blossomed Mojahida’s newfound passion for philosophy and has allowed her to add new detours to her goal of someday being involved in the medical field.  

“Thanks to my experiences at CCA, philosophy will remain front and center as I continue my academic studies, as I plan to pair it as a future minor to the major I ultimately choose.”

Keep going, Mojahida! We know you’ll do great things!

Meet Johnathan Leopold, whose life didn’t go exactly to plan, but has transpired just as it was supposed to.

“My childhood goal was to play college football, but life took me on another route. I didn’t do well in high school, academically or in sports. I became a single father by the age of 21, which has been a blessing.”

Though he didn’t excel athletically, his love for sports has driven him to take another route, towards athletic training. Surrounded by a loving and supportive family, Johnathan has opted to add other goals to his new life plan.

“I want to become bilingual in Spanish. I want to earn a GPA over 3.0. And I want to meet interesting, diverse, unique people. Attaining all three goals would complete my college experience and make the path to graduation more magnificent.”

You’ve set very inspiring goals, Johnathan - and we believe you can accomplish them all!

Make your health a priority this summer, without shelling out all your hard earned money to a gym:

Find out how in our latest blog entry: 
Summer gifts us with longer and warmer days, often boosting our energy through the roof. We encourage students to use the summer semester to blast through some classes to save money and time, but why not use the additional summer-fueled energy to get into better shape as well?

Meet John Itoe, a hardworking student who has a firm grasp on where he wants to go in life, thanks in part to his father.

“My late father, William, once told me, ‘Education is the key to success, a life-changing tool and, most importantly, the driving force behind every successful person.’ I am trying my best to live up to that standard.”

John, who is part of the Integrated Nursing Pathway, also works several jobs, on top of his schoolwork, to support his wife who is pregnant with their first child. He knows that his educational journey may be a tough one, but he rises to the challenge.

“I know I have a long way before reaching my goal, but will get there. And I know the education I will receive along the way will be the life-changing tool about which my father once spoke.”

Keep moving forward, John!
