I was really rooting and hoping this school was going to be a great experience bc when I applied the administrator was so nice! However the administrator was being nice because he's sneaky! I had to sign up for school through the phone and the administrator Richard Rizzo was helping me and when it was time for me to sign up for financial aid Richard Rizzo was on the phone listening to EVERYTHING! Then the financial aid woman was asking for my personal info including my social security number! I was sooo uncomfortable sharing bc I knew that creepy administrator man was listening but I had no choice but to tell her my SS number so I can sign up for school. Keep in mind that I signed up for school in January. Fast forward to March, I get denied medical insurance bc apparently someone in San Antonio has been occupying my SSN working under my name! Apparently I've been working since February 2024, right after I signed up for school!!! Im not from Texas, the only association I have with San Antonio is this School! I'm so angry bc I was mistreated at the Nevada career institute, now there's a possibility this school stole my identity! I've been calling SCI to speak to someone higher up about if Richard was supposed to listen to my information and no one wants to answer me so it's very obvious that this man wasn't supposed to hear to my SSN but he did anyways, he most likely wrote it down, and sold my information to illegal immigrants!! DON'T ATTEND THIS SCHOOL UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR IDENTITY STOLEN!!! UPDATE: I called corporate and no one answered my calls but I was able to get in touch with the supervisor of financial aid "Nikki"...I caught this woman in the BIGGEST LIE!! I asked her " was the School administrator supposed to listen to my personal info while I was on the phone with the financial aid lady" she was stuttering until I screamed " yes or No" Nikki responds with " it's our policy to have our school administrator listening" that sound weird, irresponsible, not right. So I called the financial aid gov 5 mins after Nikki hung up on me and asked if the administrator was supposed to listen to my information and they said " ABSOLUTELY NOT, HE WAS SUPPOSED HANGUP & GIVE ME MY PRIVACY!!! so not only did Richard listen to my personal info when he was not supposed to but the supervisor LIED! because they know this is a serious crime! This school is ran by thieves and liars!!! UPDATE: THE SCHOOL EXPELLED ME! THE EXPULSION LETTER WAS SENT IN AN EMAIL FROM A WOMAN NAMED LACHELLE HOUFMAN! THE EXPULSION LETTER WAS NOT STAMPED BY SCHOOL AND HAD NUMEROUS GRAMTICAL ERRORS! THIS SCHOOL IS DOING FRAUD!!!

As someone who has experience for 8 years with individuals facing mental health challenges, and learning academic reading, math, also trigger women, the fact of the matter have very little male friend, never like people in there traits and has planned ahead before I could send this message. I understand the importance of ensuring that their needs are properly addressed and taken care of. Unfortunately, there are times when a person's mental health issues may escalate or when they are not receiving the proper support and care, whether it be due to personal reasons or outside factors. It is crucial for people to be aware of these situations and to offer support and assistance to those struggling with their mental well-being. Despite a persons having a disability, they should always be treated with fairness and respect. However, there are instances where others may take advantage of their vulnerability, whether it be through manipulation or piling on heavy responsibilities. This should not be tolerated by anyone, whether it be a teacher, student, family member, friend, or significant other. It is essential for us all to be mindful of these situations and to speak out against such actions.
