Student Spotlight - Mark

Posted by Mark on Jul 6, 2020 6:05:29 PM

About Mark:

My name is Mark. I enjoy sports; I’m all Philly all the time. I also play sports and live a fitness lifestyle (like diet and exercise). I believe climate change is real, and this planet is in a lot of trouble. I love animals; cats are my favorite, but dogs are cool too. One day I will own a big cat like a bobcat, puma, etc. From 2016 to 2018, I lived in Colorado Springs. It was exactly what I needed at the time. I had a good time out there, but unfortunately, I became homesick and moved back to spend quality time with my sick mother.

Mark’s Background: What Brought Him to Look for an HSE Class

I had a rough childhood with behavioral issues, which doomed my schooling years. I dropped out in 11th grade but was still taking 9th and 10th-grade classes. As I look back to those years, it’s hard to believe that one can make so many poor choices and mistakes, and still have opportunities to make it right some years later. 

I became interested in getting my GED primarily to stay relevant in the workforce. Now I have discovered that it’s so much more than that. The way I feel about myself has changed. I have the confidence to stand and face the things that scare me; this is so much better than the fear that has had me running for years.
