I am finally done with my degree program! I started this journey in in early 2014, after being turned down for a job interview with a great company because of my lack of four-year degree. I began my first term with Western Governor's University on April 1, 2014. And now, just over a year later, I've completed the program! It has been challenging at times to keep focused and complete the work, but as I moved closer to the end, it became easier to focus and concentrate on the goal ahead.

Now it's time for a short break. My wife is also finishing up her bachelor's degree. It wasn't easy having both us studying, working full time (with a new job for me) and raising two kids, but we are almost there!


My degree is here! Woohoo!
My degree is here! Woohoo!
