“I think hospitality is a good path for me because it helped me to learn customer service like how to welcome people and make people feel comfortable. The class can open doors into the restaurant and hotel business. I learned skills that enriched my personality […] The class gave me a path at adult school. During the class there was a speaker who taught us about “gold service.” Those who passed the class got a certificate and also a pin in “gold service” that shows that we are good at customer service. I took my first class here [at adult school] and then went to take more classes at Skyline. The hospitality class was the most enjoyable class I have ever taken!”

“I decided to go to [South San Francisco] adult school because I was looking for a program that could give me some kind of training to be able to find me a job and because I was computer illiterate. At the adult school, the staff helped to motivate me. I went to Nereida’s office almost everything day looking for opportunities and help with my phone or the internet. [Adult school] was the stepping-stone to getting me to Skyline College. I was kind of scared because of my age and after not being in school for over 28 years but they said you can do it. [Now at Skyline] I have a 4.0 GPA and I am taking 15 units. I am looking into business [as a major]. I would like to transfer to Stanford, UC Santa Cruz, or San Francisco State University.”

“I decided to go to [South San Francisco] adult school because I wanted to improve my confidence in speaking English, my grammar, and my pronunciation. [Adult school] helped me to follow my career pathway and they also helped me to find my goals and how to achieve them. When I decided to take the hospitality class, I wasn’t sure because I thought it would be difficult and I wouldn’t be able to understand some stuff. After I attended, I realized that I can continue my studies and I learned how to be more confident in myself. [Now as a current ESOL student at Skyline] I would like to get an associate degree at Skyline and improve my English. I would like to major in hospitality or communications and [then] transfer to a University.”
