CAN Success Story
Anja (aka "Alexandra") applied to the College Achievement Now program to work as a Peer Mentor and to be a program participant. Her job here involved guiding and assisting other Hancock students. She provided one-on-one tutoring, essay review, note taking, time management, organization and general study tips. Anja was outstanding at both encouraging the students she mentored while also holding them accountable for their work. Students came to rely on her for her expertise, and the staff appreciated her great work ethic. Anja completed her studies at Hancock with a 4.0 GPA! She plans to pursue a Bachelor's degree and then apply to law school so that she may work in international contract law for the United Nations. She is well on her way!
