About Me
It Is Never Too Late to Follow Your Educational Dream

After I graduated from high school, I was offered a job in the construction industry that paid very well for my age. I told myself that I would go to college eventually, but kept putting it off due to sheer procrastination. I had always dreamed of working in the medical field. As my 20s came and went and I was well into my 30s, I realized that I really regretted not going to college. While it was tough, I soon began going to school full-time and, after a few years, landed the job I was meant to perform and now love it. I feel blessed that I had the encouragement and help of my family to pursue my dream, and I want to encourage others who don't have a support system like mine to follow their dreams as well. I plan to post many educational tips on my new blog!
