Hard Work Always Pays Off (PYE Board Member Highlight)

Check out our latest post from our very own PEATC Youth Board Member, Calvin R!

PEATC Youth Empowerment

My name is Calvin and I decided to spend my senior year at Northern Virginia Community College instead of high school. I am currently taking English as dual enrollment to cover my high school credit and first year of college credit for English. As someone with dyslexia, writing does not come easily and it seemed like a good idea to not take a writing class twice. Math and science are my favorite subjects and I will be attending Virginia Tech next year in the engineering program.

My year at NVCC has helped me earn credits so my college transition will be a little bit easier. It also gave me experience talking to professors about the accommodations. I must give every professor a college accommodation sheet each new semester. I believe this has included nine professors. It really helps to explain what I need and get to know my professor.
