I had my own place at the age of 17, my own car and job I felt like the most independent woman in the world. Occasionally I would go out with friends about every weekend to party because I was still young and at the time a lot of that was still on my mind. After about 4 months or so I walked across the stage with my graduating class of 2003. I finally had my high school diploma and was going to be on my way off to school. At the time I did not want to leave to go to college right away so I decided to take college courses at the community college to get ahead. In the midst of it all I was working so much I let my job get the best of me so I started getting really bad grades in the community college.
I decided to take a break from school at the time and focus on getting my money together so that I was able to go off to college within the year. I received a better job offer at Lowes Home Improvement making about a dollar more so I left Food lion and started a new career over at Lowe’s as a customer service representative. I loved my job, I was making more money so that mean more savings. I met a guy that I really liked at the time, we starting dating and we were actually both going to attend Elizabeth State University within the New Year. At the time I had no idea I was pregnant did not find out until I went and got a routine checkup from the doctor. This was about 5 months before I was scheduled to go off to school so of course I was unable to go and ended up having my first son in July of 2005. I feel like as a teenager I did a lot of things that I could have altered in order to change the way of my success but sometimes you live and learn and you mold from your mistakes which makes you a better person. In the book it says although the physical and mental changes in human beings are most obvious from birth to early adulthood, change is in fact lifelong. Understanding the changes present in adulthood, which are often not as obvious as physical growth, is critical for understanding yourself; during adulthood, many changes take place inside the mind (Mossler, 2010).
The jobs I have obtained over the years, I first starting out working at Sonic’s drive in at the age of 15. My very first job did not think it could not get any better than that. Afterwards when I got into high school I stopped working for a while to focus on my school work so that I was able to be at the top of my class. Over the years my next jobs consisted of all customer service based which I was very comfortable with because I love interacting with the public. I am very outgoing person and felt that was the perfect field for me to be in. From working in a grocery store, construction store, medical billing facility, and last job which is current is a management position at a hotel which I absolutely love. I feel this is the perfect field for me customer interaction every day and I really enjoy the career path I chose which is why I decided to take up business...
