I enlisted into the US Army after graduating from High School in 2012. Enrolling to HCCC I was taken aback by the amazing support the professors, and other faculty staff provided to accommodate my military obligation and consistently working with me during my leaves of absence. Returning in 2015, HCCC once again provided a hassle free transition back to my civilian life and education to which I graduated with Honors in 2016 with an AS Accounting Degree. HCCC went above and beyond to ensure I had the optimal opportunity to complete my exams and assignments early for I received orders for deployment. I even got accepted into Rutgers University. After returning home in 2018, I continued and completed my Bachelors and currently work as a financial operations analyst for Morgan Stanley in NYC.

The positive climate and support from HCCC sparked a drive and direction I needed in order to balance my personal and professional growth, inspiring me to be the best that I can be.

I enjoyed attending HCCC; the professors are loyal and helped me through my journey in college. The college made me feel comfortable and motivated. It prepared me to become a future entrepreneur, and I know how to act like a businessperson. The classes were all worth it. NJC4 was very interesting; I know how businesses should compete. I loved how my team members were detailed, and we learned the real meaning of business during challenging times. HCCC is a college that’s amazing and spectacular in its own ways. It’s a college I’ll never forget!!

Hudson has helped me because it was a firm foundation of who I am today and I can always grab from experiences lived there to go for more. Hold onto every experience that life gives you and see it as the only opportunity that life will give you.
