My name is Nicole Orak I am 24 years old. I tried the college thing back in 2011 and I really didn’t appreciate it. I am a single mother, I have a 2 year old son named Messiah. For the past two years I’ve been interested in going back to school and I want to obtain my nursing degree at TC3. Without college initiative upstate college prep classes, I would not have been able to get the ball rolling. I am returning to school in the Fall 2018! This prep class has really helped me build my skills back in reading and writing and math. I am very excited for what the future holds for me at TC3.
