Stories from Pace Manatee

Zykeria's Story

"My name is Zykeria and I am a proud 2021 Pace Graduate! I came to Pace because I was behind in school and was struggling at home. My counselor, Ms. Yolanda, helped me better communicate with my mom, and my teachers helped me in class. During the pandemic I worked at a retirement home, but I also stayed focused and earned 22.5 credits – plus I served on the Girls’ Leadership Council! Now I’m attending Manatee Technical College in the Patient Care Program. After I work for a year and save money, I will become a Registered Nurse."
