STATEMENT: I'M IN AND NOW I thought getting my Bachelor's at CTU was the limit to my dream, but now I am getting my MBA!

Describe your educational aspirations.

I am 43 years old and my aspiration is to get my Doctorate degree through CTU, in order to achieve a dream that I thought would never be possible. I would love to be able to work in my field of study and show my kids and others that, if they can do it, then so can I. I am looking forward to reaching my goals not only to prove it to myself, but to others who may think it is impossible after being out of school for over 20 years. Education at CTU has inspired many to take on their dreams and will continue to do so!

What goal(s) would you like higher education help you attain?

Some would say a job or more money. In addition to this, I believe self-confidence is also a crucial in the goal process. The icing on the cake is when those who did not believe I would do it, see the certificates that prove that I did! Additionally, my goals of higher education have made my husband proud and inspired my children to finish college as well.

How do you envision your life being different after earning your degree?

After finishing school, I will not only have the title 'Doctor' in front of my name, but also the career that has been waiting for me! The other more important thought is that I will be able to help financially so that my husband, who is the love of my life, will not have to work so hard. Maybe then we will be able to enjoy vacations that we've never been able to before!
