My path in life took a while to figure out

    Internships! Two years while supporting a family! Talk about tight money & time.

  • 5.

    Landed a dream job! Finally started to feel the return of my hard work!

  • 6.

    Only the beginning, now working towards even bigger and better things.

Defining Moments

  • How I responded:

    Stick to it, look before asking questions, try harder. It pays off big time in your career.
