You have to want it for yourself.

Aisha Watte, a 22-year-old originally from Alexandria, Virginia, is a CJCC graduate. She arrived in January 2011 with her high school diploma and completed the Medical Office Support (MOS) Trade. In October 2012, Aisha was accepted to the Keystone Job Corps Center in Pennsylvania for advanced training in Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN). After completing advanced training, she plans to further her education and training by becoming a Registered Nurse (RN).

While at CJCC, Aisha was a dorm leader for Rosa Parks and participated in several community service projects and activities. When asked if there was someone or something that made a significant difference in her training at our center, Miss Watte mentioned Ms. Jennifer Lester, MOS Instructor "who has always been there to help when needed," Ms. Janet Jones, ACT/OCT Coordinator "who helped me get into advanced training" and Ms. Lisa Lewis, Records Clerk "who is always there to listen." Her words of wisdom to other students interested or attending Job Corps are "you have to want it for yourself" and "things don't come easy."
