This five-minute video is part of a series prepared by the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL), featuring adult learners explaining how improving their literacy skills changed their lives.
This video focuses on a 23-year-old man who went from being a strong student in elementary school to being a high school dropout, working at dead-end jobs. Eventually, he realizes that if he wants a better life for himself and his young family, he will have to go back to school.
He enrols in a self-paced upgrading program and decides that he wants to become an electrical engineering technician.
