...working in a factory and paying bills,” Arnold said. “After I came here, my long-term outlook changed. It allowed me to take my career and future more seriously.”

 

After graduating from GCCC, Arnold hopes to get an internship at a parts shop. One goal is to become a body technician.

 

Graves believes the program will have a major positive effect on her life. First and foremost, the program enables Graves to plan her future. Her long-term goal is to be the manager of a shop she owns.

 

“In the short-term, I want to get an internship to get my foot in the field. I want to make people realize they want me,” Graves said. “Just because you have something rough going on, that does not mean you cannot get past it.”

 

Upon graduation from GCCC, Graves wants to acquire an internship. She hopes she will be able to take the baby steps needed to become a technician.

 

“Prove Yourself” is a motto Graves abides by.

 

“In this field, being a woman means nothing. I want to have my own shop and prove to people that I can do it,” Graves said.
