How has education changed your life/your family?
My parents, both high school dropouts, instilled in me from an early age the value of higher education. While my journey has been circuitous, having that education has allowed me many avenues to explore. I can’t imagine not having had those opportunities and am thankful every day for my diligence to complete college and earn an advanced degree.
