This story was told by a person incarcerated at SATF (California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison).
Caller: Man. I wanna say school more than any single- we’re not going physically, but the education department based off of so many people being in one place, you know? They have to find a new environment, but I’m doing college courses, matter of fact I just received my AA degree in Liberal Arts, Sociology. So I was able to complete that through correspondence courses, you know?
UCI: Oh! Congratulations!
Caller: Yeah, thank you. So that was an accomplishment that I was able to, you could say one of my coping mechanisms.
Caller: I enjoy doing that and reading, studying, working out. It’s a good stress relief from being in cell living- I’m in cell living right here. So, I mean, it can be a bit difficult, you know?
