James Walker’s Dedication and Drive
James Walker from Miramar College completed his Computer Business Technology (CBTE) Legal Secretary Certificate in Spring 2021.
Walker’s longtime passion for law enforcement and criminal justice prompted him to pursue this field of study.
“It matches my interest with my skill set, and I’m confident that I can be successful in contributing to help others,” he said. “I also had a connection with several people that work in law enforcement, and I’ve always been interested in what they do.”
Raynisha Jackson Levels Up!
Raynisha Jackson has a bad romance to thank for motivating her to pursue higher education in her thirties.
“It lit a fire under me,” she said, referring to her ex’s persistent negativity. “In the words of Ciara, I needed to ‘Level Up!’”
As a deaf person, Jackson was also looking to escape the limitations of the Social Security system.
“We can't have careers if we're on Social Security. You can only make a certain amount of money a month before they start saying, ‘You seem to be a little more independent than we want you to be.’”
