For Nicholas Enoch, school wasn’t always a good experience. Diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome as a child, he describes himself as “socially awkward,” with his middle and high school years being really hard for him.

Honors, General Studies, Global Studies Certificate
“I didn't think I was good enough to go to college,” said Nick, who is a General Studies major. “I felt that I would not be able to think about college, let alone actually go to college. CCBC, for me, was a second chance to improve my education and myself as a person.”
After starting at CCBC, Nick came out of his shell and got involved in many activities on campus. He was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honors program, a First Year Experience Mentor and a member of the CCBC Fresh Faces team. An aspiring writer, Nick also served as editor-in-chief of the school newspaper, CCBC Connection.
I am a very introverted person and becoming involved at CCBC changed my life for the better,” said Nick. “Now I always look forward to meeting new people, sharing my story and helping students find opportunities to grow and shine, much like I was able to do at CCBC.”
A CCBC 2020 graduate, Nick plans to transfer to a four-year university to major in Journalism and either Chinese or International Relations. He would like to become a travel writer or work for an international news station, which will enable him to achieve his goal of experiencing and writing about new cultures.
