Always involved in many activities on campus, Priscilla Flores has lived the college experience to her fullest potential at The College of Westchester (CW). From a variety of clubs, student ambassadors programs, community events, Priscilla is always willing to help. It seems that we all know her really well. However, what not too many people know is that she is a first-generation college student. Since the sky is the limit, a bachelor’s degree is not enough.

When you reach a point in your work life where you feel ready to try something new or realize that perhaps you’ve outgrown a particular position or that your interests have evolved, it can be so easy to talk yourself out of making a change by saying, “I could never do that” or “I don’t have the right training.” Furthering your education with a college degree can help you make a fresh start in your career.
With graduation coming up, there’s a lot to think about as you wrap up the semester and plan for the weeks, months, and years ahead. Whether you’re new to the job hunt or have been in the workforce for a long time, your next moves are going to matter. Especially if you’re just getting started in your career, it can be very intimidating to think about.
Success in most fields requires a tenacious spirit and a drive to achieve. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Digital Media World. However, the perfect formula for success includes tenacity and talent.
Congrats to all the recent college grads out there! You’ve worked hard and have earned yourself a diploma and gained experience that can help open doors. You’re probably being bombarded with advice from all directions.
