“What made me decide to pursue my degree as an adult, was based on the fact that I want to be more marketable and also be able to impact people in my day-to-day life.” – Joseph A., BSCJ Student 18′
“What made me decide to pursue my degree as an adult, was based on the fact that I want to be more marketable and also be able to impact people in my day-to-day life. I’m very busy. I mean at times I work 16 hours in a day.
Traveling on the road, I am able to sit down to say I need to do it. So being able to juggle my personal life and also having time to do my assignment, the motivation is there.
What kept me motivated to finish my degree is the word ‘failure’. I don’t want to fail in life and also I want to be able to impact my kids, my grandkids and also motivate my niece and nephews that even though I am not that old, and I pursue my education, they can also look at me as a role model. To also keep on, you know, educating themselves.
The advice I would give to a current student or somebody that is interested to go to school is for the need to have the attitude, believe in themselves, have the courage and determine that if I can do it, anybody else can do it. I wish anybody the best of luck.”
