My journey started with Milan Institute in August of 2020. I usually had a hard time in the past comprehending things in college and would become overwhelmed, but for some reason with Milan Institute it wasn't like that. My instructor Mrs. K was a blessing. She made my course at Milan Institute a positive and smooth journey, she was very patient and understanding. Within my first week of my externship with Yosemite Bone and Joint I was offered a job. I ended up being hired on towards the end of my extern as a Surgical Coordinator. I am thankful for Milan Institute helping me find my passion. Just remember to never give up on your determination. Anything is possible as long as you keep on pushing yourself to be the best.
