Building relationships at school and in life

Demi Tiffany says she spent too long not knowing what she wanted to do with her life. She knew she enjoyed helping people and that she was good at math and science, but she wasn’t sure what that all added up to. That feeling ended when she found Charter College Canyon Country, where she discovered the Medical Assistant program.

She says that the Charter College environment has helped make the difference for her. “I wasn’t a good student in high school, so studying in a smaller class and being able to build relationships with everyone really helps,” she shares.

“I’m a relationship-oriented person and I think that’s why I enjoy Charter College,” she adds. “At any other school, it doesn’t feel like people care about getting to know you, including your teachers. But at Charter College, they do care and that has made a big impact on how I’ve done in school.”

She also appreciates Charter College’s straight-forward approach. “It’s a focused program, so there’s an opportunity to advance my degree and I don’t have to study the French Revolution to take care of someone,” she says, referencing the additional, non-career-related classes typically required in advanced education.

Tiffany’s enthusiasm has been noticed by her teachers and peers, as she was recently announced as a Fab 5 Award Winner, which is given to five Charter College Canyon Country students every three months who exemplify commitment, a great attitude, respect, energy, enthusiasm and resourcefulness.

“I’ve never received an award like this before, so it feels a little strange to me,” she says. “But I’m very thankful and proud of winning it. I like it demonstrates that I’ve worked my hardest, been respectful to those around me and that I’m willing to volunteer.”

During her time at Charter College, Tiffany has volunteered for events at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, as well as for the LA Galaxy soccer team. She won an award (and tickets) from LA Galaxy for her outstanding work with their youth groups.

“Demi is a good student, but she’s also incredibly thoughtful and ambitious,” said Canyon Country President Juan Tabanera. “She’ll make an excellent medical assistant once she finishes up her program.”

Tiffany is currently completing her externship with the Valencia Center for Women’s Health, and she’ll graduate on September 16 with her Medical Assistant Certificate. After graduation, she plans to get a part-time job, so she can return to school to earn her Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree.

And she’s enthusiastic about her chosen profession in general. “I enjoy the time I get to spend with people and that it’s a growing field,” she says. “It’s pretty clear people with medical experience will always be needed.”

Her instinct to pursue a career in health care is correct. Technological advances in medicine and the growth and aging of the population are leading to a growing demand in the industry and require an increased need for skilled workers.
