I will be providing a better life for my children. Growing up, I didn’t have the support that I needed to develop the confidence that most other people my age had naturally. My house was chaotic – with a mother who had so many of her own issues that she turned a blind eye to the abuse that I was dealing with at the hands of my stepfather. I left at the age of 16, and never looked back, but I’ve struggled ever since. Trillium College will, and has, given me the confidence that I need to be a confident & strong mother to my children, who deserve it. Courtney, Oshawa, Accounting and Payroll
In my near future I see myself supporting my family as a medical lab technician. For the most part, my children gave me the drive to want to improve our lives. After some research, I decided that the medical laboratory technician program at Trillium college was the program for me. I can see myself going very far with this program and doing great things for my family as a whole. Kaiti, Oshawa, Medical Laboratory Technician
I will be supporting my two children and community by being an esthetician. At 16 years old I dropped out of high school with no hopes or admirations of ever returning. At 16 I found out I was pregnant with my 1st child after living in a shelter for 2 months & being in a abusive relationship. 2 years later I became pregnant again and yet again was left to take care of my children alone. Being a single mom and trying to find a job is nearly impossible with no help. After many years of self doubt I brought my self to Trillium to finally make a life for myself & my kids.

I want to provide happy smiles for my family, friends, and community 🙂 I believe attending school at Trillium will better myself as a person. All my life I’ve wanted to help and provide for my family, growing up I lived with a family of seven, and I knew it was hard on my parents trying to provide for that many. So I promised I would work my hardest and study hard to give my family a good life. My parents said to me “don’t do it for us, but do it for your sisters, so you guys can keep going and have a good life”. This is a promise to myself and my parents.

I have been in that cycle for 7 years and it is time to make a change for the better. Trillium will give me the skills to do what I want to do in life instead of coasting along the easy route.

This field will give me the opportunity to be able to help people of all walks of life. My husband Bill went through a coronary artery bypass graft procedure this past January, and at this time I was in a MOA program with Trillium College Oshawa Campus. I was able to watch and observe the various devices they used on him. I started to think how cool it would be to fully understand this process. What my husband went through and he is doing much better now, has had a profound impact on me. This has infected me in such a way that I am now enrolled in the Medical Lab Technician program.

Providing relief and easing pain to the public as a massage therapist. After years of seeing my Mom suffer the efforts of fibromyalgia, and knowing the relief she gets from massages, I decided to look into going back to school for a position in the same field. It was perfect timing to change my career and help others at the same time. Tim, Oshawa, Massage Therapy
I will be proudly helping elderly’s as a PSW.

Jennifer, Oshawa, Personal Support Worker   I would be supporting and protecting my community as a security officer. Trillium College will change my life as for the last five years since I graduated high school I have been struggling to get my life in order. I graduated high school with almost no idea what or where I wanted to be, and thought I could play life with my high school diploma. The last year or so I have been looking into various jobs that all have said something along the lines of “need police foundations or equivalent” for the application. It was enough of a hint that this is what I needed to do. Christopher, Oshawa, Police Foundations
