My name is Reed Caron and I moved to Charlotte from Millinocket, Maine. I am currently living in the Southeastern part of the Queen City in the Matthews area. Charlotte has so much to offer and I love living here.
There are two driving factors behind the decision I made to go back to school and obtain my college degree. The first, and most important, is that I am finally at a point in life where I can truly do something for myself. I have always had to put school aside to deal with more pressing matters in life. Well, not any more! The second reason being that my current place of employment allows me to take the time I need away from work in order to go to school. I am so lucky to have this opportunity and I am not going to let it pass me by!
At first I I was telling myself that going back to school was the hardest decision I have ever made. I was completely wrong. It is the BEST decision I have ever made! I enjoy going to class, meeting new people, interacting with teachers and participating in school activities.
Do not let your fears prevent you from making the decision to go back to school, use it as motivation and embrace the opportunity. You will be SO glad that you did!
