Career Goals: “I’d like to work in cybersecurity because it’s a growing field. I was drawn to the IT degree because I grew up playing video games and working with computers and technology. I realized I had a passion for it.”

He chose Middle Georgia State University because … “It’s close to home. This University is very affordable in the state of Georgia. Middle Georgia State also has a great information technology program.”

The greatest thing he discovered about Middle Georgia State was … “I was fascinated to learn that Middle Georgia State has an aviation program. I grew up watching my father work on airplanes for Delta. I actually debated between the aviation program and Information technology program for a while.”

To him, ‘greatness’ means … “Being the best ‘you’ that you can be. That’s what makes a person great because everybody’s path to greatness is different. As long as you work hard on yourself and your goals, no matter how long it takes, you’ll find your greatness.”

In five years … “I see myself working in cybersecurity and starting a family. I plan to encourage high school and college students to continue chasing their dreams, and to not give up no matter how hard it gets.”
