It is with great honor to be a 2020 Graduate … “Victory Belongs to Jesus”! Without him I’m nothing. It was not easy but worth every bit of it.. I’m so grateful to have come across some amazing lectures and staff members that made the journey a little lighter from the dedication, efforts to the encouraging words and how can I forget some of the students from my year and the previous Graduates with the same mind goals that all encouraged me to keep focus and to push no matter what..They all made this journey a memorable one. Cheers to the Class of 2020!

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 3:13-14

In everything that we do there is always a reward of a higher calling, that we look forward to once we have achieved a goal that we have worked towards. Many people fail to embrace this reward or achievement because they continuously look behind and lose focus on that pressing mark.

This journey has definitely been a long and hard one. I overcame many obstacles and can now proudly say “Mommy, Daddy and Grammy I did it!” This milestone could not have been possible without God’s blessing and the support of a few family and best friend.
