“I never thought I could even go to college. Now I have two associate degrees and a bachelor’s degree. Going to El Centro taught me discipline and how to completely restructure my life as to what was most important. Sometimes I hear people say, ‘Oh, you don’t know what it’s like where I come from.’ But I do know. I’ve been there, and I never want to go back. And now that I have an education, I’ll never have to.” Read John's story.
