 Hello!  My fellow Classmates! My name is Yvette Lunday and I am 62  years young, smile!. I have already raised 4 sons, and am an ex-military wife who has traveled around the world. I am currently residing in the Northern part of Alabama with my youngest son,  and the rest of my sons are all grown up, and living their own personal lives with their families.  I have a job history of over 25 years-plus, working with the mentally disable and helping others in need as a; Professional School Bus driver, Family Support Worker, Substance Abuse Counselor, Residential Counselor, Private Duty, Home Health Aide, Certified Nurses Aide, and a House Manager & Supervisor. So,I decided that at the ripe age of 56 years old, it was time for; me – to – do “ME”!  So, I went back to college and I received my Associate Degree in Business Management here at Ashford University 4 years ago in 2014 and received my Bachelors Degree in July, 2016—– in Health & Human Services. I am not quite sure the exact professional field I will be in at the moment, but I do know,  that it will be pertaining to “Trouble Young Teenage Girls” and “Me” directing them in the “Right-Direction” of Life! I will be a professional Counselor or Social Worker as I continue my education here at Ashford University, and aiming towards my future goal with my “Masters Degree”  in Psychology which I am currently working on now.I should have completed by Oct. 2018 at the age of 62 years old. My motto ” It-Is-Never-Too-Late”!——————————————————————————————————————————————– Hello! My fellow Classmates! My name is Yvette Lunday and it is a pleasure to meet you all!. I am now 61 years young and pursuing my dreams and goals that I had envisioned for myself during my younger years. I started to attend college when I was fresh out of High School at the ripe young age of 18 years old. Although, after 3 months in college, I decided to drop out and marry my military husband and travel the world with him. I did not regret this once and a lifetime opportunity to travel and see the world. I have visited several Countries such as France, Spain, Holland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Bahamas, Jamacia, Grand Cayman Islands just to mention a few, smile. ————————————————————————- Hello! My Fellow Classmates! Nice to meet you! My name is Yvette and I am 61 years young, smile. I am now residing in the northern part of Alabama but originally from Up-State New York. I am a mother of four sons, who are all now grown up and gone now. Furthermore, I am a ex-military wife and a daughter of soldier, which has enabled  me to travel to many different places around the world. I have also, been working in this field of Human Services  for over 25 years now. Since, I had already raised my family, one day I decided that, it was time for me, to do me! So, I decided to come back to college at the ripe young age of 56, and have already received my AA degree back in Aug.,2014 in “Business Management”  at Ashford University, and then my BA degree in “Human Services”, which was last Oct. 2016.

   Hello! Ann! The paper is good but the first 5 pages seem to be redundant. My end goal is to open up an after school program for young trouble teenage girls in the inner city to help guide them in the right direction of life. This passion was placed in my heart as a young pregnant teenager headed in the wrong direction of my life and a very nice social worker helped me to figure out which direction I should take. So, now all I want to do is “Pay-It-Forward” and give back to the community–what–it gave me–“A-WONDERFUL LIFE”!. I want to save another young-trouble-girl–like–someone—“SAVED-ME”! 🙂 My experience of traveling all around the world will also make me a “GREAT-COUNSELOR” due to the diversity of all the people that I have encounter around the world. I also loved to talk and am a “PEOPLE-PERSON” with great communication skills which comes from {Military-Life). I am very understanding to all cultures because I lived all around the world. Maybe, some of this information I just shared with you can help create a better Portfolio. So, can you please revise it/ Thank you! We have until Sunday 🙂

P.S. I also married outside of my race so this also helped me to understand other peoples culture and accept it. I am American& Multiracial and my husband was Latin. So, I have so much experience in diversity
