In high school, I had it pretty together. I was goal-oriented, got good grades and played volleyball. But I didn’t know a thing about college and that made the idea of college feel scary and out of reach at times. So when I learned about OneGoal, I thought, “Oh my God, finally!”
My Program Director Mrs. LaMonica-Weier did it all: she taught me about the program, talked me through financial aid options, helped me apply for college, the list goes on and on. OneGoal helped me focus on more than just picking a college but to instead think of what career I wanted to put myself in and find a college that would help me get there. If it wasn’t for that, I would have gone to college undecided, taking general classes and letting advisers decide for me instead of taking the lead in my future.
