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.
CCBC Honors Student,
“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.”
Since starting at CCBC, Nick has come out of his shell and is involved in many activities on campus. He’s 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 is even editor-in-chief of the school newspaper, CCBC Connection.
I am a very introverted person and becoming involved at CCBC has 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’ve been able to do at CCBC.”
After graduating from CCBC, 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.
