As part of her participation in the Arizona Assurance Program, Ortiz had to spend some time on career planning. She decided to enroll in Design Your Search (DYS). At first, she thought she would attend one session with career educator Amanda Harrell, check off her requirement and get on with her senior year, with the same low expectations. But after spending time looking at the content, Ortiz thought, now's the time.
"After getting deeper into the program, I was just like, you know what? It's my time to take advantage. I need to stop procrastinating. I need to start looking at what my next career choice is going to be, what I'm going to do after graduation," says Ortiz. "This is when I started meeting Amanda more."
