Why I Am Committed To GATEWAY TO GRADUATION ACADEMY
I love working with students helping them achieve their high school diplomas as well as motivating them to continue their college education. I help each student individually with their college and financial aid applications.

A Learning Experience That Changed Me
My father served in the Korean War and I learned that our military soldiers and veterans are all to be honored. I realized that freedom is not free and that our military soldiers sometimes have to pay the ultimate price with their life so that we can have all the opportunities to live, study and succeed in the greatest country in the world.
