    Concentration: Psychology


    What I was doing then just didn’t suffice anymore; I needed education to better myself. I wasn’t growing anymore and I wanted to start growing again. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted at the beginning, but I knew I wanted more.
Thirty years after attending high school, Henry Wood decided to go back to school because he realized that his odd jobs weren’t a career. “What I was doing then just didn’t suffice anymore; I needed education to better myself. I wasn’t growing anymore and I wanted to start growing again. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted at the beginning, but I knew I wanted more.”

He later decided to pursue his bachelor of arts in psychology because he wanted to help his community by becoming a social worker. “Growing up,” Henry said, “I noticed how people really looked to me for help. When they were in trouble, they would come to me and I could help them get through it. This became a passion. When I finally got into trouble, someone helped me and I wanted to give back.”

It wasn’t an easy road, however, and when Henry lost his housing he stopped attending classes. “Somehow, I came to realization that I should have fought through it and kept going to classes. I was lucky that they let me come back, I was very fortunate. The administration at the SNR, they believed in me and they got me back into school.” He starting attending classes again after almost a year away and will be graduating from the School of New Resources after the fall semester.
