GCD taught me to balance my life, learn priorities and offered amazing opportunities ... internships in pharmacy, work on clinical floors and hopefully, before I graduate certifications as a CNA, patient care tech and in EKG and phlebotomy. With these, I can earn money while in college and stay on track to make everyone proud…myself, GCD and my parents.
