Second and post-secondary students in Angela William's Withlacoochee Technical Institute accounting class were asked: "Where do you see yourself five years from now?"
RAMONA HOPKINS, 30, POST-SECONDARY, "I will own my own home, and I will have my own business with my husband. He's in barber school right now."
EVE STORY, 39, POST-SECONDARY, "I'd like to be in a business accounting office, like in a hospital. My goal is in May to start looking for a better job."
CRYSTAL BENAVIDEZ, 17, JUNIOR AT SOUTH SUMTER HIGH SCHOOL, ATTENDS WTI FOR ACCOUNTING, "In five years I see myself as an accountant. I'll have a degree in accounting. I'll have my certificate from here (WTI) and I'll have my diploma and I think I'll be a successful accountant. I'll probably go to Texas, mostly because my family's there."
CHRISTINE RABIDEAU, 17, SENIOR "Hopefully, I'll have my own business in horticulture or agriculture. By then I'll have completed two years of college studying agriculture. I like to grow stuff. I want to have my own nursery."
