“I wanted to do something that was interesting, meaningful, and feed my soul. Nursing has done all of that and more for me. I had several obstacles when I started the Practical Nursing Program at Lanier Technical College due to language barriers. I took ESL (English as a Second Language) classes to help overcome my language barrier. If I made, it you can too!” said Choi. 10/24/2020
