The Mad Real World

Senior Zulimar Guajardo has a plan after high school to attend a two-year college and transfer to a four-year university. Not many teenagers her age have a plan after high school.

“I plan to attend a two-year college such as Richard J. Daley and then transfer to a four-university such as Roosevelt,” said Guajardo.

Guajardo has a well thought out plan after high school. She wants to attend a community college first to save a lot of money and get her associate’s degree then transfer to Roosevelt where she plans to get her bachelor degree and maybe even a masters.

“I would like to be a social worker for abandoned children,” said Guajardo.

Guajardo wants to be a social worker who focuses on abandoned children. She likes the idea of being able to help innocent children who are abandoned in the street or put into foster care.  She wants to be able to help the suffering children and place them in safe environment so they can grow up and be someone in life.  

“I plan to major in Sociology and Psychology and get a bachelor degree and master’s degree. To get also license to be a social worker,” said Guajardo.

Guajardo is one of the few who are sure of what they want to do in life. She wants to become a social worker and attend four to six years of  school.
