Wow, the moment I’ve been waiting for has arrived!
On June 4, 2013 I received the email from Serge A. Buy the CEO of National Association of Career Colleges stating that they were letting Everest College know it was now ok to enroll me in the Early Childcare Assistant (ECA) program.
I’m not going to rip NACC apart in this post in regards to the emails they sent me last because in the end I got the result I was waiting for, the “right” result!
I will state however that I do not appreciate the fact that NACC tried to make themselves look good and me the bad person in the final emails. I am keeping everything that happened over the last couple of months until I have completed the program and I am certified.
On June 5, 2013 I received an email from Mike Lacroix asking if we could set up a day to meet and get things rolling for the ECA program. I was extremely excited to see that email and a bit confused because some steps had to be repeated, but hey it was a step in the direction that got me going in the direction I want!
So on June 11, 2013 I met with Mike Lacroix, Melissa Kingston, kate whom sorry I forgot what her title is and Natalie the instructor for the ECA program. The meeting with all parties went very very well and I can now look forward to my start date.
Hey, does anyone know when that is yet? Hmm, well August 26th or sometime in October.
The bad news is I have to be up at 5:30, yes I said, 5:30 in the morning! I mean not that I sleep much or at all most times, but that’s besides the point. 5:30 in the morning is just not right!
So I will now happily close chapter 1 with NACC and hope that I do not have to start another chapter. I would like to thank all the parties involved that helped me during this time and who stood by me and told me not to give up while I fought for what I wanted.
I hope that if another person that wishes to attend Everest College for the ECA program who is visually impaired or legally blind does not have to jump through these hoops. I hope I have at least been able to open that door for you.
