At PCC, my classes stretched me, my teachers invested in me, and I gained the skills I needed to be successful. When I started my first degree-centered job, the founder of the company came to me and asked me where I’d learned my skills. ‘Your work is amazing. It’s excellent,’ she told me. ‘You’ve given us exactly what we are looking for.’ Without PCC, I wouldn’t have received the training or confidence I needed to excel at my job, and I wouldn’t have been able to fulfill my dream.
