In collaboration with the Syracuse Post-Standard and InterFaith Works, the following “Daily Inspiration” was one of a series of essays written by adult learners from a range of local programs that was published.
I attend a BOCES literacy class, working toward my high school equivalency diploma. After graduation from a high school with an Individualized Education Plan Diploma, I worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital. I wanted new opportunities, but realized I couldn’t without a Regents High School Diploma. My dream is to work in a job in which I analyze sports. A major part of this job requires math skills because a large percentage of debates involve numbers and how they contribute to a team’s success. I have a long road ahead, but it will be worth the struggle when I start my career. This is what inspires me!”
