I went back as an adult student to obtain my high school … it was an amazing stepping stone. It was very comforting being among other students in the same / similar situation. I was definitely prepared for the post secondary experience.
I now have my degree, CPA, CGA designation, was successful in starting a small business and now an elected official in the municipality I call home.
Definitely a place to regroup and set yourself up for success.
