Ana from Staten Island, New York

I'm a working student. With help, I can build my resume by studying online.

I'm working and studying through online classes. While the courses are free, I need help to pay for the certificate if I want it on my resume.


I am 23 years old. I live on Staten Island, where I work at a bakery. I have worked in the food industry since I was 15 years old. I am also a college student, who wants to go back to school to get a masters degree in mental health counseling.

My goals is to educate myself and hopefully one day be able to help people. I plan to go back to school and get a masters degree so I am eligible for a better job. I plan to finish three online classes and pay for the verified certificate.

I need to continue to work on my education even if I am out of school. Finishing the online classes I'm taking through Harvard University will be eligible to write on my resume if I pay for the certificate. The class itself is free but I need to pay for the certificate at the end.

Meeting this need will help me because the three online classes focus on the career I hope to pursue. The classes will teach me material I will use in the future when I go back to school to get my masters diploma.

I have been supervising Ana since December 2018. During that time, she has been in compliance and has been putting every effort possible to be successful. Ana is a very bright young lady who always comes into my office with a smile. She is eager to return to college so that she can attain her Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling and to continue being a productive member of society. It should be noted that the online courses that she's currently taking through Harvard University are free however she has to pay for the Certification.
