“I chose to come to WVJC because I wanted to do something to better myself. The idea of always having to rely on someone to take care of me was terrible. I also wanted to be a good role-model for my future kids and any kids in my life; explained Megan.”
She loves WVJC Bridgeport so far. “My favorite part of attending this school has been all the new people I have met. I have never been surrounded by so many people who truly care how you are and how you are doing. It has been an awesome experience for me and allowed me to grow so much as a person.”
Megan also loves the Medical Assistant Program that she is in. “I chose this program because I am really good with people and my personality puts a smile on faces. The idea of helping people like I have been helped made me feel as if I was repaying the favor somehow.”
