“I can do all things through Him who gives me strength”
Philippians 4:13

Why UTA: Texas is where I wanted to go after my enlistment. The degree that I wanted was only offered at 2 schools in Texas, UTA being one of them. Ultimately, UTA was near my brother’s house which helped me in making my decision.

Experience So far: The campus and a lot of my professors are really nice. It’s been a better experience than I expected it to be. I really appreciate all the resources that UTA offers their students.

Goals after graduating: This is my first year so my short term goal right now is to pass all my classes with high grades so I am able to enter the engineering program. That is a very important goal for me right now. After graduating, my long term goal is to one day work for NASA.
