It has helped my confidence skyrocket with making new friends and acquaintances, being successful within my classes, and being recognized for the hard work that I have poured into my studies and clubs during my time at CCC. The last two years have changed every aspect of who I am for the better and I couldn’t be more grateful for what the college has given me on that level. It was through these connections that I felt like I could keep excelling within my classes and was constantly challenged and encouraged by my advisors and instructors to rise to the challenges,” said Taylor.
