Humphrey Continues Family Tradition

31 October 2011

Highness Humphrey, a native of Tanzania-East Africa, came to Pratt Community College in 2008 for the Nursing Program. She learned of the program from relatives who had previously attended PCC.

"I chose to attend PCC because I had relatives here, one had just finished and one was still attending when I joined," Humphrey said. "The fees were the most affordable and I heard they had one of the best practical nursing programs."

She said she was very glad she chose to attend PCC's Nursing Program. She was glad to have had the opportunity. Humphrey is currently working in Pratt as a Registered Nurse.

Humphrey's advice to students going back to college is that "at the end of the day [the Nursing Program] worth it. It's not easy, but doable. There are no dumps you'll ever get into that nobody else has ever been before; therefore this means there is a way out."

One lesson Humphrey learned while attending PCC was how to accept and receive people, and be less self-conscious, being from a different culture and not being a "people person" made her learn to overcome those issues.

"PCC has helped me to learn to weigh my options accurately before I make a major decision, regardless of the risks," she said.

She hopes to one day go to a four year school and continue her education.
