My younger cousin decided to take some time off after she graduated from high school. Unlike the rest of the family, she decided not to go to college right after graduation. She worked at a local restaurant for two years before deciding to go back to school, and at that point she decided to explore trade school. She went on various tours before finally deciding to enroll in a Heating, Ventilation plus A/C program. This program lasts 1 year, and she goes to school full time during the week. At the end of the program, she will be a licensed Heating, Ventilation plus A/C repairman. I am so proud of her for going back to school and starting a career for herself! I recently called to check in on her progress, and I was certainly cheerful to hear that she enjoys the curriculum. She is enjoying learning something so practical and useful, and as she learns about modern techniques in repairing heating and cooling systems, she is applying these techniques in her home as well. She has already upgraded her heating system in her father’s home, and she has also repaired the a/c system at her mother’s apartment. It makes myself and others so cheerful to see her learning something new, and applying her knowledge in the real world! In another three months, she will complete her program, at which point completing her program, she is looking into finding a full time job with a Heating, Ventilation plus A/C corporation. Our entire family is so proud! She has taken the first steps towards building a serious career which will allow her family to live a comfortable life.
