These events will allow me to discover who I am and who I want to be, and eventually they will lead me to discovering all of my goals that I want to achieve in life After high school I plan on attending Grand Rapids Community College. I choose Grand Rapid Community College not just because it was less expensive then a University, but because they offer a program for the career path that I have chosen to pursue. This particular Community College offers a three year program in training to become an Occupational Therapy Assistant.
