About the JSI Experience

"The Social Justice class taught me how to interact with people and why certain disparities exists in certain neighborhoods. My advice would be, if someone offers you an opportunity to take a free college course, go ahead and take it. I guarantee it’s not going to be like, “oh, I didn’t really like this class but I learned a lot,“ it’s going to be like, “hey I took this class and I learned a lot of stuff… how about I go to college and learn a bit more”. Or you can take those credits and transfer somewhere else. That’s what I did towards my nursing degree."
