OCCC VOICES: Brenda Ortiz Cruz I am from a small town in Oaxaca, Mexico. I was raised by my grandmother and my great-grandmother. They took over for my mother who, as a single mother, moved to Mexico City in order to work and support me. She could not see a future for herself in our village. I grew up speaking Mixtec (Saa Savi), and Spanish. Now I continue to improve my pronunciation in English. I came to this country when I was fifteen because my mother wanted me to have a better quality of life. When I got here, however, I did not speak any English. With much hard work and the help of a few key teachers, I managed the language barrier and finished high school. In my immaturity, I decided that life was easy, so I stopped thinking about school. For years, I thought that the biggest challenge of my life had been moving to the United States, but I was wrong. Three years ago, depression knocked at my door. It destroyed me. I was alive because I was breathing, but life had no hold on me. I was on the edge of a terrifying abyss. My family helped me keep going, but I had no vision. Nothing motivated me. One day I got the OCCC quarterly mailing in my mail box. I looked at it, and I thought why not? It was time for me to change my life. It was time to find my passion, to get my life back. I called and made an appointment with Blake Hagan. I’m not sure how I even dreamed of college. I had no money and no plan, but I did not let that stop me. I followed my guts and said this is my time. I vividly remember my first day of school. I was intimidated by a classroom full of young, cheerful people. I felt totally lost, but I continued—walking away was not an option. I had already spent money that I did not have, so what else could I lose? I asked myself this question repeatedly and I stayed.

After one year of being in college, I look back with a big smile on my face. I have taken risks that I never thought I was capable of ... I am so grateful for the opportunities that I have had.

Welcome!

Beyond the course material, each class was a challenge in unexpected ways. I remember people asking me what I was studying. I never knew what to say and, each time for just a moment, I’d think I didn’t belong here, but I did not let my bad thoughts control me. Time passed and I finished my first term, then my second and my third. Every time it became easier in many ways, but it never felt less challenging. After one year of being in college, I look back with a big smile on my face. I have taken risks that I never thought I was capable of. In January of this year I got an Invitation to Join the College Honor Society something that I never came across to my mind because I never thought it was possible to achieve. I am so grateful for the opportunities that I have had. Last fall OCCC granted me a scholarship, and I have been working really hard to get good grades. To me having good grades is a way to thank the Foundation for believing in me and giving me that scholarship. I am a full-time worker, the mother of two young children, and I am full-time student. I strive every day to do my best in everything that I am doing. I want to set an example for my children. I believe that education is the most important value that I can pass on to them. I have learned so much in this past year; now I have bigger dreams. I want to graduate from our college, then build my career here serving the people in this community. I love the coast. This is my home and I want to be able to give back some of what I’ve received—and not in the distant future. I can’t wait for that time, in my near future.

Have a Pleasant Present

“This class is about assisting people in understanding that our own personal belief system and self-talk set us up to perceive the world either negatively or positively,” explains instructor Violet Young. “We are influenced and become preconditioned by and through our upbringing and life experiences. As this happens so slowly during our lives, and we become resigned to the ‘usual outcome,’ we are not conscious of the patterns being formed. After resigning ourselves to the ‘that’s just the way it is’ way of life, there is often the onset of depression and anxiety. By exploring and learning to recognize our own patterns and triggers as well as recognizing that we can give ourselves options to view situations from different perspectives, we can then be open to make choices that painlessly create new growth and joy. During the class there will be time for personal exploration and sharing of personal experiences by class members. There will be helpful handouts and the creation of personal flash cards by class members.” INSTRUCTOR: VIOLET YOUNG WEDNESDAYS, 5:30-7:30PM • MAY 9-JUNE 13 • $45 SOUTH COUNTY CENTER • WALDPORT

RESIDENTS 65+ RECEIVE FREE TUITION FOR CREDIT CLASSES

County residents aged 65 and above get free tuition for credit classes on a space-available basis and taken for an audit. Auditing is taking a class without receiving a grade or credit. You can only audit a class if there are still seats available on the first day of class. This 100% tuition waiver does not cover lab fees, books, or other class fees. Many classes fill up early, so space is not guaranteed. To use the waiver, find the class you’d like to take in the class schedule, but don’t register yet. Print out the senior waiver form and contact the instructor on the first day of class. Get the instructor’s permission to take the class and have her/him sign the form, then return to Student Services in Newport or Lincoln City. After the waiver has been applied to your account, log into myOCCC and pay any fees not covered by the waiver. Registration prior to the first day of class will void the waiver.

Are you using the right social media channels for your business? There are many platforms, they each work differently and can provide different results for varying types of businesses. They also have different tools, strategies, clients, and markets. Just this winter, Facebook unveiled a series of changes to its algorithm – changes that have profoundly affected how businesses need to use the tool to market effectively on Facebook. How can a small business keep up and have the time to be successful while doing all the other operational issues required to thrive on the Coast? This class will cover the many changes, updates, and tools each platform uses (including Facebook’s recent major changes) and how to determine which Social Media tools may work best for you and your business. In a world of mass marketing and noise, how can you really talk directly to clients, and reach them just when they are in the market for your product?

Marketing with Instagram

Instagram is a powerful storytelling platform allowing businesses to connect with their audience at a very personal, very human level. Developed by photographers, Instagram was built to be visually inspirational, making it an ideal platform for businesses with products or services that can be captured visually (e.g. lifestyle, food, retail, design, fashion, etc. – in other words, countless Oregon Coast businesses are great candidates for using Instagram to communicate with existing and potential MISTY LAMBRECHT PHOTO BY TONIA ANDERSON customers). Many business owners question whether or not they need a presence on Instagram? The answer is yes! Leveraging the power of Instagram for business branding and networking is critical.

OCCC VOICES:

Christa Kropp I grew up in Wasilla, Alaska. My family was incredibly poor and very broken. I was abused throughout my childhood, and by the time I turned 14, I had fully moved out of my home. I went to school the best I could while working two jobs and taking care of my little sister. My grades were not good enough to earn a scholarship, so I went to work. I traveled and worked and saved until I made it here with enough money to attend school. I have worked hard to get to where I am and the years I have not been in school have not been wasted. Receiving an OCCC Foundation Scholarship allows me to save for the next, more expensive, steps in my academic career, instead of taking a year off to save enough to go back to school. I want to destroy the stereotype that women cannot write hard science fiction. I believe there need to be more people from my generation going into journalism, and I especially believe there need to be people who understand how important newspapers are to the rest of media structure. Most of all, though, I want to inspire future girls to embrace careers in the sciences. I believe it is a necessity for my generation to be heavily involved in protecting and healing our environment. I am interested in learning how to grow food in a more efficient and ecologically sound way, that provides more food to the population than what we are currently producing. I have been successful in nearly everything I have put my mind to, and I’m confident I will provide benefit for our community, which I plan to thrive in, for the long term.
