    Personal Philosophy:I believe that education can change a person's life. It did for me. I am testament to a hard-working, never give up, attitude that can overcome severe life challenges. I believe that education is a combination of required academic skill and social interaction skills. We are human beings, and as such, we need to be able to successfully navigate the social world as well as the intellectual.
