ASCENDER PROGRAM SHAPES DANIELLA GARCIA INTO MORE RESPONSIBLE STUDENT




ASCENDER PROGRAM SHAPES DANIELLA GARCIA INTO MORE RESPONSIBLE STUDENT


After high school, Daniella Garcia was not able to go to college because it was too expensive, so she went to work full-time at a bank, worked hard at her job, and after three years, was able to save up enough money to enroll in South Texas College. She did not think college would be that hard, but discovered that it was often a struggle to be in school and work at the same time. Daniella said that when faced with struggles she “works through them one at a time.” The Ascender program has helped her realize who she is as a person.  Her CTN instructors helped her realize that no one is perfect, and everyone goes through different struggles in life. “It’s different for everyone with how they start out in college,” she said.  Being a part of the Ascender program has helped her realize how important college is and shaped her into a more reliable and responsible student. “It has made me want to work harder than I ever have in school,” she added, “and this program has helped me find out what paths I would want to take.”

Daniella is the Ascender club president. She said she ran for president because she had “never done anything like this” and felt it would be “full of new opportunities.” What Daniella loves about the program is all the great opportunities it has to offer and how she can volunteer and be as involved as she can. As president of the club, she says her duty is “to see what else she can help in to make the club better.”

She is also hoping that she will be able to make the Austin trip during the summer and is very excited to go because she has never traveled to Austin.

Daniella is going to graduate in the spring of 2019 with her associates in criminal justice. After that, she plans to get her bachelors at the University of Texas Rio Grande valley in Edinburg with a criminal justice major. She wants to be a state trooper because she “wants to be the one in charge giving out the orders to others and not the other way around.” This is her dream career.
