“I’m from northwest Detroit. My name is Brent Jackson. I currently live in a halfway house on Franklin and Livernois. I’m coming back from the VA. I used to go to Henry Ford Community College for C&C; trying to enroll in Macomb Community College in January and complete [my degree]. I’m just trying to get employed.”

What are you planning to get your degree in?

“Computer-numerical Control: Programming machines to make parts. I’m trying to get something that’s marketable in the job field.”

Have you always been interested in Mathematics?

“Not at all! I went through Focus Hope and was told I was too old and my criminal record is too bad to get a job in just anything. So I needed to develop a marketable job skill.”
