Challenge the status quo. This is what drives me. To take a step back, analyze, experiment and repeat until the status quo becomes no more. I look up to the creators of the world; the individuals that realize we can make our own world or live in someone else’s. Towards the final chapters of my story, I hope to leave the world with a creation. A creation that enriches, alleviates and inspires someone else’s world. Thus, only through graduating do I feel I can make this a reality.
With that said, I am most proud of never plateauing. Taking calculated risks, facing fears, and always analyzing myself, I search for the next upgrade. My story so far is a collection of small and quantum leaps of faith. One such leap was the military. I put away all that I knew and gave myself over in return for higher education. Now, on the other side, I’m enrolled full time pursuing my bachelors—a substantial upgrade. And once I complete my degree, I’ll be better equipped to challenge the status quo—not only for myself—but for the others around me.
