Experiences and challenges that shaped me

  • College opened doors for me. My family was not in a position to help me in any way financially. Government grants and loans allowed me to make the best investment in my life. There is no better investment that you can make.

  • Enduring endless stories about "Educated Idiots" from my family helped to keep me grounded in why my education was important to everyday life. Don't let anyone tell you that knowledge you gain is worthless.
