My motivation

“I shall pass through this life but once. Any good therefore that I can do, let me do it now for I shall never pass this way again.” 
― Etienne de Grellet

Next big goal

My next big goal is to launch my own company while obtaining a Master of Business Administration (MBA) along the way. 

Why is choosing your own path important?

Sometimes carving your own path means breaking away from inherited chaos. Madonna University was my learning sanctuary. 

#MeToo. In my youth, life was tragedy; abused in all of its forms, abandoned, neglected, isolated, poverty-struck and living without a guiding compass. I grew to depend on myself. I had no hope, comfort or one person to trust or confide in. Then a miracle happened, this past atheist prayed for God's love... Carving my own path meant growing closer to God, while working through the misfortunes life sometimes brings. 

To God be the glory. 

Favorite place on campus

Madonna's library study rooms; it is remarkable to learn where ancestral thought is preserved.
