DEGREE: Master of Science - Homeland Security -

STATEMENT: I'M IN AND NOW I'm in my seventh class with CTU and I love it. I am almost finished with my Master's and I am receiving job offers left and right.

Describe your educational aspirations.

As an investigator for Homeland Security, I want to protect my friends and family from harm with the education that I gain. I want to help if there is another attack or if there is a hurricane or a natural disaster where people might need me. I have had a lot of hits myself, and I know I can stand up after everyone of them. I have just survived my 4th brain operation and I want to continue and inspire others to continue to do better as well, there is nothing stopping me.

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

I want to gain a job in law enforcement or local government, then proceed to finish my doctorate studies. I've always wanted to be a police officer, but when Homeland Security became more relevant, many more opportunities opened up and brought purpose to my life.

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

Definitely, there is nothing holding me back anymore. Doing something I am passionate about and have a good life doing it. I want to help others with what I have learned by any cost necessary.
