Academic Flexibility at Brookline College - Tucson:
Well to be honest i have a very long struggling confusing story that pointed me in my path to get back into school and bettering not only my life and myself but helping and returning the favors by taking care of the family that actually stuck by me helped me and also wanted me to further my education and get my life on track after i hit rock bottom.
I chose to get back into school because my mother passed away in February 2013 and myself at 20 years of age at the time,, disabled,, no job,, only a high school education,, and brother at 21 years old ,,no job,, no experience,, no education at the time were completely blind-sided,, shocked,, and just unprepared for "life" in general,, we were so close with our mother and relied on her for so much,, then all of a sudden out of know where she just passes from a freak medical reason it was just devastating to us,, left home-less with nothing to our names,, left in a state with no other family nothing and no one. We "luck-ally" were able to get in contact with our distant Uncle out here in Arizona who came out to get us promised to help us get our life's together,, give us a place to live,, and everything else we had to figure out on our own,, but all that was promised never came about and yet again me and my brother and 2 dogs about 2 weeks later were left yet again to figure out our next steps,, stuck here in Tucson with nothing and no roof over our heads.
Then our grandma((our mother's mom)) Helen Denniston who is even more distant to my bother and I felt she owed our mother enough to take us in. She struggling herself tried her hardest but after a month or so couldn't really do anything for us due to she was unable to hardly take care of herself being disabiled,, so me and my brother couldn't just sit here and make her go in debt for us and it was only few months time. We had no other choice but to get in contact with our father in New Mexico,, who we've never really known,, seen,, or spoken to most our life's due to the fact when my brother and I were younger and him and our mother was still together he would Physically and Mentally abuse us on daily basses. One day after my father had came home on break from work and beat us all for no reason at all((like most days)) my mother finally said she had enough and we all packed our stuff while he had went back to work and ran from him and never looked back and just never really spoke to him after that. Well when we called him he tried to tell us he was a changed man and wanted to make right by us and would try to help us with getting on our feet getting in school for both of us and just giving us a secure roof over our heads basically,, that lasted 8 days exactly before he tripped out on a substance called "Spice" called the cops on me stating i tried to attack him,, of course being as it was a false report there was no charges or anything done further then the officers telling my brother and I we had 24 hours to get out of his house and to never contact him again on his orders and so we had no other choice but to due so. Being stuck home-less again in another random state with nothing,, our grandma Helen had to save us yet again going into even more debt for us,, so from that point on May 01, 2013 i personally promised my grandma from this point on i owe her my everything and i feel in complete debt to her for the rest of my life. I promised her I'd get in medical school get a good career and pay her back everything,, plus I gave her the biggest promise from the bottom of my heart that as soon as I'm able to i will take care of her for the rest of her days giving her anything and everything she's ever wanted,, and i with every muscle,, bone,, vein,, molecule EVERYTHING in my body fully intend to due so and keep my promises,, cause unlike a lot of others,, I've never made a promise i wasn't intending to keep.
NOOWW,, with that all being said,, Brookline is an AMAZING school,, amazing staff,, great with there flexibility,, and if your honestly and truly wanting to better you education and mean it,, it's effortless getting started with Brooklin,, they had me attending classes within a week.!!!!:0)
