WHY: There were very few academic expectations for me growing up. I was never challenged in school until I got to college, which resulted in ?me not being prepared. That’s when I decided I never wanted to see that happen to anyone else. I went through college working full time (40 hours per week). I also played college baseball during this time. You can accomplish anything if you are willing to put in the effort and push yourself and be the perfect you! 

EDUCATION is Self Improvement, so take advantage of it!
