Default Mini-Intro's for our Students

Hey folks...

Being a student is something that quite a few of us have in common, so there are a few of us that haven't had the pleasure of posting together yet, so I thought we could have little, mini-intro's here.

Join in!

I'll even go first!

I'm Jenn, 25. I am currently working on getting my BS in Accounting to get ready to sit for the CPA exam and then my Masters in Accounting.

I have already completed a BA in Philosophy with a double major in Communications, a minor in Biology and an emphasis in Chemistry.

That covers it, for the moment, anyway!

Jenn

Hi all,
My name is Lisa and I have a BS in Forensic Criminalistics, a Certification from the MSP academy, my Practical Nursing certificate, a certificate in Legal Nurse Consulting, and am currently waiting to do my demo clinical for my RN. Once I get that, I'll be pushing on for my Master's in Nursing.

I've replied to several postings but never introduced myself. My name is Dante and I am a convicted SO trying to get further in life. I'm on the last year and a half of my probation. Right now I am attending college majoring in computer graphics and 3d animation. So far I am able to create computer generated images in two dimensions as well as three dimensions. I am also an amateur photographer which is great because now I know Photoshop like the back of my hand. It is nice to meet all of you!

My name is Vanessa. I am wrapping up my BA in Psychology this Summer and then heading to SDSU for a 1-year Masters multi-cultural counseling program. It will put me in a position to counsel people with various backgrounds, and I am looking forward to being able to use this experience to be able to relate more with women and men who may be going through a similar experience, someday...

I would like to go to school but my job is always interfering with that. So i ended up droping out. My mom is the branch Manger so i just do what she asks and i am still in the same rut. So i was wondering if anyone knew of some classes i could maybe take online cause even when i have to go out of town to work i can travel with a lap top. Something has go to be better than working for a cleaning company fopr the rest of my life i been doing this for 10 years.

Well, unfortunately, reputable schools that offer online degrees can be kinda pricey...

I personally go through Strayer University and I really do like it. It's a bit high, but my financial aid helps TONS!!!

Good luck!
Jenn
