Intended Job Path
As a child I always wanted to work for the government as a Civilian. What ever my future holds I want to be an asset to a company. Because of my future goal I chose to pursue my masters in Information Assurance and Security with the concentration of Network Defense. This Degree is the start of my future but with this degree I can inspire may people. People that believe its too late, has no funding, or just too may setbacks in life that may stop them from seeking a higher education. I am a walking testimony that if you make goals for yourself you can achieve anything with hard-work and dedication. I have put in many job applications, scholarships and worked three jobs trying to get close to my goals. Even if I applied for a million things and get back five that will not stop my dreams. Life was never easy for me and that is what keeps me going and keeps me humble. I say this because what I am doing now is not for me, its for my legacy!
