Video Transcript: I choose Medix because I needed… I felt like I needed more education I wanted to get out and get more experience
And I thought that a practical field would be really interesting.
I definitely like this lab because it is practical; they tell you things that you will be doing in the real world
I like my instructors because they are real people, they are very easy to approach and they are just down to earth
I thought I would struggle a lot (more than I do) but anything I need help with, there is a classroom full of eager people as well as the instructors
Before Medix, I didn’t think I was going to do much and now I can definitely see myself continuing my education working in a hospital or prison
I know the job market for uneducated people is really tough, I want to get a good start for myself and I want to be able to come into my twenties as an educated women.
