I am very grateful for the opportunity to have obtained my Master of Science in Analytics at CSU where I was able to learn critical skills in analytics while also following how God would want me to succeed. The Lord has truly blessed me with the opportunity to attend here as well as work here. I work as the Veterans Services Coordinator and am blessed to be able to help veterans and their families meet their educational needs and sometimes just be there to talk to. Nelson Mandela really captured the impact that education has when he said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” I really have a strong resilience and believe that a person should never stop learning, never stop dreaming, never give up and always stand by faith and rely on God’s promises.
