What is your motivation for obtaining your degree?

My motivation for obtaining my degree is to better my life and also for my future; I want my kids to not have to deal with the things I have growing up. I also want to help out my family as much as possible when I become successful in whatever I’m doing.

Why did you choose Averett’s Graduate & Professional Studies Program?

I chose Averett’s GPS program because Averett has become my home ever since I joined in the fall of 2013. I have made so many connections, lifelong friendships, and created so many memories that it was only right for me to join. I also had one year of eligibility left for football and felt like my time there wasn’t done either.

Please share one tip for your fellow classmates and future AU students:

One tip from me is to stay determined through all adversity. When times get tough and you don’t wanna study or whatever it may be you have to remember the reason you’re doing this. That’s what keeps me going and grinding every day.

What helps to keep you motivated while you are in the program?

My motivation is to get out of the struggle. It’s easy for a lot of people to slack off because they have been fortunate enough to not have to go through any hardships as myself, so I grind to get where I wanna be. “Grind over matter.”

What is your anticipated Date of Graduation?

Averett University, MBA Class of 2018!
