Stride Has Contributed To My Skills For Future Employment
By Irie Green, Stride Student Advisor
My name is Irie, and I’m currently in 11th grade. I’ve been with the Stride Career Prep program for about two years now. When I think about what Stride means to me, I reflect on how this program is vital because it allows me to explore various career fields within my given pathway. As an Interactive Media student, I get hands-on work experience that I can then use in future jobs. I have always wanted to have my future career be in the arts, and Stride has given me proper insight into the skills I must obtain to achieve my career goals.
This program not only gives you an idea of what your future employment path may hold, but it also gives you a jump start on your career by letting you obtain certifications and possibly earn scholarships. Opportunities like this can be so important for people who are looking for employment, internships, or higher education beyond high school.
Due to the classes that I’ve taken, I have already been able to carry out the skills I have learned in my recent work. This has, in turn, compelled me to create a business and already make a profit off of my own hard work.
Ultimately, the Interactive Media Program with Stride Career Prep has not only enriched my academic life, but it has also enhanced the skills that I will use for all my future employment.
