What is your motivation for obtaining your degree?
I am motivated to finish my degree to create more opportunities for myself and my family.
Why did you choose Averett’s Graduate & Professional Studies Program?
I chose the AU GPS Program because the flexibility fits into my busy lifestyle and schedule. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Pat Williams, Chris Ellis and all of the AU staff. Everyone has been fantastic.
Please share one tip for your fellow classmates and future AU students:
Don’t give up. Realize that sometimes you will have to make sacrifices but keep your eyes on the prize. So what if you miss a game or stay up late to finish some work. With sacrifice comes success. Work hard and rewards and opportunities will present themselves.
What helps to keep you motivated while you are in the program?
My main motivation is my son. Some days I work on my homework while he works on his. I try to be a good example for him to work hard and truly enjoy learning.
What is your anticipated Date of Graduation?
I am scheduled to graduate in the summer of 2017. I will be a proud alumni!
