“I want to thank the union and the staff for their support throughout my academic journey. I could not have accomplished so much without their support. For those who don’t think they can, I am a walking testimony that with 1199C and the will to succeed…God and the staff will see you through 🙌. I did my part, and they were cheering me on every step of the way! No, it isn’t easy, but it is possible!”
