“Who is Me?”
Hi my name is Roxanne Wagnon. I am 58 years old and I am here trying to love life again and chasing a childhood dream.
The journey started with an on the job injury and the death of my husband. I felt as if my life came to stop. My heart was broken and I was told I had to go to school or I would get no pay.
In the fall of 2016 I started a journey and was very uncertain of the outcome of this chaos my life had taken.
I was registered in a Pathways Career program to receive a customer service certificate. With the support of my instructors and advisors I surprised myself and did very well as a student. I graduated in June of 2017. I decided I enjoyed school so much I wanted to continue and full fill a childhood dream.
I have always loved movies and as long as I can remember and was able to go to a theater and watch the big screen I would go to the movies. I have a passion for drawing and writing. I always wanted to write and illustrate children’s books. Dr. Seuss is a great inspiration , I have always admired his writing and the characters he created in his books. As I child I would read them over and over again . When my children was young I would read them Dr. Seuss ,Green Eggs and Ham was their favorite and now I enjoy reading them to my grandchildren.
I talked to an art advisor and found out there is no certificate or degree to write and illustrate . We went through all the art courses and found the Multi-media certificate and together we created a journey. My adventure is in motion ,and I am chasing my childhood dream.
I want to thank you for taking the time to read my “Me” page. I hope I can inspire anyone to take the chance to live a dream. It doesn’t matter how old you are you can do it. My motto for my new life is “Life Without Struggle has no Challenge.” Take the challenge and never give up.
