My educational journey took some twists and turns. It took me over 30 years after graduating from High School to finish my four-year degree. It is often said that you are only competing with yourself in many parts of your life. Looking at how my GPA kept getting higher with each accolade I'd say I was definitely out to prove something to myself.
