Student Success Story
Submitted By: Baldy View ROP
Success for a Young Mother of Two
Sarahi was a 17 year-old single mother of two young children and attending Valley View High School.
Sarahi enrolled in the Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) Program at Baldy View ROP. Since she was only 17 years old and raising two children, while still attending high school, she was exhausted. Sarahi stated that she committed to the program because she did not want to raise her kids on welfare.
Sarahi persevered through sleepless nights taking care of sick children, the demands of her comprehensive coursework, and the rigorous requirements of the Registered Dental Assistant program.
She successfully completed her program, earned enough credits to graduate and began working in a dental office. She is planning to sit for her state licensing examination soon. She is very grateful for the opportunity that Baldy View ROP has given her.
