  6. Hello everyone,
    My absolute pleasure on meeting you all. I’ve read this program and I am actually quite interested in it. So, if possible, I would like to join, too. I’m a student of the AIU, I’m going for an Associate’s degree in the Arts in Business Administration. I graduated from Patrick Henry High School back in 2014 with a high school diploma. Anyways, I’ve always been a fan of art (art, music, etc.) and when I came across this, I thought, “Wow, this is my ideal kind of job.” I do have a job right now, but it’s just not really for me. I just think that there ought to be something more than just working at a gas station/convenient store. Working with the public can be quite stressful and I’m barely getting by. I’m still get by okay, but just barely. Honestly, I do like the idea of working at home, but, most of all, making a living on what I love doing and that is drawing; doing artistic stuff. Regardless on whether or not you’ll have me part of this program, thank you for your generosity and consideration.
