"Television is not real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs." ~ Bill Gates
Throughout my college experience I have held many jobs both in my hometown and at MCLA. As the cost of college rises and financial aid decreases it is important to realize the value of working while in college. These jobs helped me fund my travel expenses that have shaped the person I am today while also providing me with the money I need for day to day living instead of having to take out more loans. Although some of these jobs have at times prevented me from participating in other co-curricular activities these jobs have given my strong work ethic, and functioned as a reminder of what education can provide me.
