Why wait to believe in yourself?

Before she found herself at Green River College, Adriana was unsure if she'd be able to afford to school. After receiving guidance from her sister and finding the support she needed on campus, Adriana graduated from Green River College’s Practical Nursing Program and now works at an acute hospital.

"Everyone here at Green River is about helping you succeed. You're part of the community, people care about you... I didn't feel alone, I didn't feel like it was scary or something I couldn't accomplish. It's just that extra help that helps you believe in yourself." - Adriana
