My name is Abril Reyes and welcome to my blog! I am a college student attending Henderson State University in Arkansas. I am currently working on my business technology education major in hopes of me obtaining a job as an EAST (Environmental and Spacial Technology) facilitator. The reason that I want to teach is because I want to be able to make a difference in the world we live in now and want to be able to help several generations to become more that they could ever hope to be. I am a first generation college student so education for me has always been an important subject. Besides school, I am either working at McDonald's or at home with my huge family that always seems to keep me busy.
I have worked at McDonald’s since I was 17 and still in high school. I have stayed with this job because it is one of the few jobs that are willing to work with my college schedule and the management there has always been supportive. I tried to find a better paying job at the beginning of my spring semester, however, there are not many other places that will work with my college schedule besides McDonald's where I live. My family consists of my 4 brothers and sisters and my awesome mom. My parents divorced when I was in middle school so I also have my dad. He eventually re-married and now I have two step sisters. When I finally have some down time (which isn't a lot) I will play video games or read. The reason I have created this blog is actually because of my chaotic lifestyle. I would like for more people to know about the struggle and journey that comes to being a full-time college student with a part-time (sometime full time) job along with helping with five other kids at home. I would like for more people to understand what it all that it to get to a college diploma.
