Growing up in Ruidoso, I was always told about the importance of education. From a young age, I have enjoyed, reading and writing.
Being homeschooled taught me to take control of my education. However, it was difficult for me to decide what career path I wanted to pursue after I graduated high school. I decided to enroll at ENMU-Ruidoso due to the proximity to home and affordability of the school.
Within my first semester here at ENMU-Ruidoso, I decided to seek a degree in English. My English class that semester from Daniel Waldo heavily influenced that final decision.
Since ENMU-Ruidoso is a small campus, the faculty has the ability to be more personal with students, which I think greatly enhanced my learning experience. I also have been given the opportunity to be a work-study student, through which I have met wonderful people.
Sadly, my time here will come to an end in May when I graduate. I will then transfer in order to finish my Bachelor’s degree. After that, I plan to further my education with a Master’s degree in English so that I can become a professor and give back to the community that gave so much to me.
