Tech Powered by Brothers: Charles Sizemore
Columbus Brothers Charles and Roy Sizemore have more in common than their last name. They share a love of technology, and the ambition it takes to succeed. In 2013, Roy graduated from Per Scholas and has gone on to enjoy a career as an IT Risk Analyst. Last year, Charles realized he’d reached a professional dead end, and needed to find his next step. At one point he had enrolled in college with a plan to study radiology, but he kept thinking that a path to an IT career was one he preferred to take.
Roy was persistent, telling Charles to take a chance and “go to Per Scholas” for months. Charles tied up loose ends that enabled him to fully commit to the 15-week program, and he enrolled in training. Charles recounts his experience with his instructor, James Miao: “He was encouraging, easy to approach, and he could make it suddenly all make sense.” The material became easier to master, and soon Charles found himself mentoring others in his class.
Charles recently graduated from Per Scholas and earned two industry-recognized certifications. He and Roy regularly exchange articles on tech sector news and trends, and he is continuing his technology education in a cyber defense course at Columbus State University.
