“I can’t just open a book and read something and understand it. I need to try out what I read. People say I’m smart, but I didn’t make good grades in my academic classes because I couldn’t see how the words related to anything I knew or cared about. That’s what I like about Hands on Academics for Careers. It gives me a taste of how I will use academics on the job.”
