Congratulations to Emeline Gerner on being selected as Good Learning Anywhere’s Learner of the Month for the month of February. Emeline has consistently been a very active and dedicated learner with Good Learning Anywhere for almost a year now, completing courses in Saba as well Plato, where she has been incredibly focused, working diligently towards completing her learning goals.
Emeline came into our program like many learners do feeling nervous and questioning whether they can do this or not. Several learners are new to computers and new to this alternative type of education offered online. With the support of her online mentor at GLA, Emeline was able build her confidence and stick with her learning plan.
We asked Emeline to answer a few questions and share her learning journey. These were her responses:
What advice do you have for someone thinking about upgrading their skills?
You are never too old to learn something new.
How did you start?
A friend of mine told me about the courses, my friend was already taking courses at the Learning Hub.
If you encountered any struggles, what were they and how did you overcome them?
When I first started, I kept thinking I couldn’t accomplish anything, but once I started working on my classes I just kept at it until I finished my work.
What is your greatest achievement?
Knowing that if I continue doing my school work I will achieve something good in my life.
What are your goals for the future?
To finish my schooling so that I can feel better about my life.
