Q: Who or what influenced your decision to go back to school and finish your degree?

A: I now have a masters degree in management and leadership and a bachelor’s degree in sociology. As far as my future plans I want to own my own agency like Eldercare but offer private pay services only.

Q: Do you have any special tips to share for someone wanting to go back to school and pursue a higher level of education or specialization degree? Any advice on how you juggled and balanced work, home life, extra activities and school?
A: You can do anything that you put your mind to. The truth is that you have to really want it! Obstacles will come so stay focused and remember the reason you started in the first place. Follow your dreams and never give up no mater what. Dust yourself off and try again. Prayer and endurance is how I juggled it all. It wasn’t easy, I had to have faith and patience to keep going. My advice would be to stay positive no matter what situation you may face. It’s all up to you so stay encouraged.
