MBA, Class of 2015

"I will be the first of my parents and siblings to receive my master’s degree."

I received my Bachelor of Science in December 2014. After I received my BS, I figured I would go ahead and start on my master’s degree. At first I was scared because people were telling me it was hard. Once I started, I found out it wasn't as hard as they said it was. Then, when everyone found out I was doing it online, they really gave me all kinds of stories: that they couldn't do online classes, they have to have a physical teacher, real desks and the list goes on. Well, I put all of that behind me, trudged on and now I am ending my second class. As long as I stay ahead, I will be able to handle it. I will be the first of my parents and siblings to receive my master’s degree. This is my goal: to receive my degree, open my own business and work for myself.
