A Life Transformed
by Daniel Thomas
There was a point in my life where I thought it was over. I remember being broke on drugs – being of this world, and not in it. But now, I am a different man. I am in school. I do have money, and I am going to be successful no matter what it takes.
Teen Career Academy (TCA) is not only a school for predisposed kids who want to excel. With remarkable teachers and a good support staff, they bring these qualities to that demanding role in an unforgettable way.
Money isn’t the only answer, but, as Barack says, it does make a difference. TCA also helps myself as well as other students prepare for the world of business. Not just teaching us some work to just get us out of the classroom, but to actually sit down and help the student understand the work.
I think that this program is noteworthy, and it has allowed me to work at my own pace. I think that students are beginning to see that it’s not about how much work you do, but the quality of the work you do. This is what my teacher told me at the beginning of the school year.
