My name is Alexandria Noble. I go by Alex.
I'm 18 years old. I'm born and raised right
here in Hazard, KY. I am a freshman. This
is my first semester of college. Today's Thursday
so I'm be heading off to my nurse aid class
that starts at 4:30. I applied and got accepted
to the nursing program in January so I'm really
excited about that. I have just recently became
a student ambassador for the HCTC. This is
our car wash. This is what the students ambassadors
are doing for Candace Keith. She's a little
girl in the community of hazard that has been
diagnosed with leukemia. We're just doing
a few fundraisers today to help her out. Im
actually standing out here in front of the
gym. It's our on campus gym. Its brand new.
What I'm doing right now is I am on blackboard.
Thats the system that hazard uses, you know,
for online interactions. One of the most common
questions is why I chose Hazard. When I'm
at Hazard I feel like I don't have to start
over in college. I have all my friends there
and I'm just continuing my education in a
college, an institution, that I'm very proud
to be apart of.
Maybe you've heard the old Chinese proverb that says, "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." No matter how unsure you feel taking that first step, every single one after that will be a little easier. It also helps if you have a plan to follow.
