When I first heard about this program was back in 2010 during my ninth grade year. I remember during that time I was trying to be part of any program that would accept me so I could be a part of something bigger. I heard about this program called GapBuster through my community center that brought them to us. I was a part of GapBuster from ninth grade in 2010 to tenth grade in 2012. GapBuster impacted my life greatly by teaching me the importance of having an education that could potentially open doors for me in the near future. Also, they showed me that networking is a good thing to have because you never know when you are going to ask in for a favor or even obtain information that would be vital in your life in the near future.
What I can do to personally contribute to GapBuster is by telling those who are entering high school to join this program and by doing that they can help keep GapBuster an operating program in moving towards their goal. I am currently a student at Montgomery College in Rockville and I am planning on transferring to a four year university after I finish up my two years in Montgomery College. I have decided that I want to major in Public Health and to continue onto medical school.
