FAU specialist says students should not let disadvantages hold them back

Palm Beach State College alumnus Daniel Goldstein’s message to today’s students is simple.

“Never give up on yourself,” said Goldstein, now the social media specialist at Florida Atlantic University’s Center for Autism and Related Disabilities.

Goldstein goes on to say that if any student has disadvantages, not to let them hold them back.

“Use them to motivate yourself to be better,” he said.

Goldstein, who graduated in 2017 with a College Credit Certificate in Computer Programming, sat down to answer a few more questions about his time at PBSC, what makes the College special, and the advice he would give to others.

Why did you choose to attend PBSC?
I chose PBSC, because I felt it was the right school for me at the time and I wasn’t ready to live on my own yet, so it made great sense for me to go to PBSC.

How did earning a degree or credential from PBSC set you apart?
It gave me an excellent education that exceptionally helped me find a great job in today’s world.

What is your fondest memory from your time as a PBSC student?
My last class I took there, the selected day that the professor gave us for an exam; I had a personal problem that I couldn’t get out, so the professor allowed me to take the exam on a different day. I was extremely grateful to the professor.

Which PBSC professor or instructor made a lasting impact or impression on you, and why?
I can still say that each professor I had during my time there was kind and supportive to me and to all my other classmates.

What advice do you have for recent PBSC graduates entering your field?
Don’t let anyone tell you that your drawbacks or flaws will hold you back from making great headway in your field. Use your own drawbacks or flaws to motivate yourself.
