EDUCATION & CAREER SERVICES

I dropped out of high school at 14 and was struggling to find my place in the world. Through NMIC's GED/HSE program, I gained the academic tools necessary to continue my education. I also found mentors who helped me earn my GED, do well in community college, and get accepted to Georgetown University.
