Grad Testimonial

My name is Manesa Barnes; I'm an international student from Jamaica. Coming to a new country and adapting to the new lifestyle was different at first but as I meet friends along the way and open up more both in my language and those in my surroundings, I see myself improving since I started Evergreen College. I'm no long the shy person; thanks to Evergreen College. I have successfully completed the ECA program and now I'm currently enrolled in the community service program (CSW). I feel like I have accomplish a lot by doing assignments and group work. The ECA class was really great, because I appreciate the small classes because I feel that it enhanced my learning skills and encourage me to have one on one conversation with my professor and classmates. My perspective of the class was that it had a friendly environment that made me feel welcome. I enjoyed my field placement which I did for four months. Overtime as I got more Intune in what I was doing, the children became my priority. My professor prepare me for my field placement very well, so when I went out in the field I knew what I was doing because I knew how to apply what I've learned. While I was in the ECA class, I got the opportunity to visit the Scott Mission. By being involve in donating items such as clothing, can foods and money that was put together from the bake sale by the ECA class and professor.
